Jim Elliot - missionary

Here are some quotes by Jim Elliot, missionary to Ecuador.

Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road; make me a fork, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.

God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with him.

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.

I have had to make a cross of two logs, and lie down on it, to show the Indians what it means to crucify a man.

I may no longer depend on pleasant impulses to bring me before the Lord. I must rather respond to principles I know to be right, whether I feel them to be enjoyable or not.
