Elliot: the law of God

Monday, January 8, 2018
    22nd anniversary of CQOD
    Commemoration of Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, Roger Youderian, Ed McCully, and Pete Fleming, martyrs, Ecuador, 1956
    The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.
    —Psalm 19:7 (NIV)
    “The law of Jehovah is perfect, restoring the soul” (Ps. 19:7). Most laws condemn the soul and pronounce sentence. The result of the law of my God is perfect. It condemns but forgives... It restores—more than abundantly—what it takes away.
    ... Jim Elliot (1927-1956), The Journals of Jim Elliot, ed. Elisabeth Elliot, Revell, 1990, p. 125 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 19:7; Deut. 32:4; Ps. 23:3; 18:30; 19:9; 111:7; Jas. 1:17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your law has made me know my sin.
