‘He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose’– Jim Elliot

Jim Elliot reached out to a group of people to share the gospel and ended up being murdered by them. Jim knew he wasn’t able to keep his life going forever – so he didn’t try. What have your beliefs cost you? Are you losing friends or status when you stand up for who you believe in? Jim Elliot knew he had gained what he couldn’t lose and didnt hold onto what he couldn’t keep. How could this idea shape the way you live today?

‘God, I ask you, light these idle sticks of my life and may I burn for You. Consume my life:, my God, for it is Yours. I do not seek a long life, but a full one, like you, Lord Jesus’ Jim Elliot

How’s this for an awesome and humbling prayer? Jim Elliot gave his life to reach a remote tribe in Equador with the message of Jesus. He could do it because he’d realised that his life wasn’t his own. He saw that the joy of living a rich and full life for God’s Kingdom was way better than living long and chasing his own desires. What could it look like for God to light the ‘idle sticks’ of your life? #andrewv

‘The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good:, but that God will make us good because He loves us’ – C.S. Lewis’
Did you know there is nothing that you can do that can make God love you less? You can’t earn His favour; He’s already crazy about you! It is in spending time with Him that our hearts are changed, and from there good actions naturally flow. Do you want to become more like God? Spend time with Him. Tell Him what’s on your heart, what you’re dealing with. Leave your cares with Him.
