The Ultimate Sacrifice

Romans 12:1  King James Version (KJV)

12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

In 1965, Jim Elliot was one of five godly men who died at the end of Auca lances in Ecuador.  In his diary he had written, “Lord, I pray Thee, light these idle sticks of my life, that I may burn for thee.  I seek not a long life, but a full one, like you, Lord Jesus.”  The Lord granted Jim Elliot’s request, and today the five, then ignited, still burns in the hearts and lives of redeemed Aucas.  What is our passion?  -Arnot P. McIntee.

Breathe on me, breath of God, Till I am wholly Thine, Until the earthly part of me Glows with Thy fire divine.  -E. Hatch
