Sermon Notes

“He is no fool who loses what he cannot keep in order to gain what he cannot lose.” Jim Elliot spoke these words from a steely resolve to live a life utterly given to Christ and others. He was determined to make Christ known to a people who were abysmally lost in sin and ignorant of the Gospel. Jim did lose his mortal life at the murderous hands of the very people he endeavored to evangelize, but the Gospel broke in upon this dark tribe in spite of such a grievous loss. Jim gained an eternal reward, and a tribe of sinners gained a Gospel hearing. May God create in all Christians the same kind of resolve – to live a life utterly given to Christ and others.
