The Journals of Jim Elliot


I have begun reading The Journals of Jim Elliot. For those of you who don’t know who Jim Elliot is, here’s a brief bio from Wikipedia:

Philip James “Jim” Elliot (October 8, 1927 – January 8, 1956) was an evangelical Christian who was one of five missionaries killed while participating in Operation Auca, an attempt to evangelize the Huaorani people of Ecuador.

The Journals provide an intimate window into the spiritual walk of an ordinary man that God used in extraordinary ways – a man who was asked to pay the ultimate price for his Gospel witness.

One of my favorite quotes so far from his journals is this: “I pray, light these idle sticks of my life and may I burn up for Thee. Consume my life, my God, for it is Thine. I seek not a long life, but a full one like yours, Lord Jesus.” ~ Jim Elliot
