Elliot: the extraordinary God

Sunday, January 8, 2012
    Commemoration of Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, Roger Youderian, Ed McCully, and Pete Fleming, martyrs, Ecuador, 1956
    [God] chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him.
    —1 Corinthians 1:28-29 (NIV)
    Forgive me for being so ordinary while claiming to know so extraordinary a God.
    ... Jim Elliot (1927-1956), The Journals of Jim Elliot, ed. Elisabeth Elliot, Revell, 1990, p. 98 (see the book)
