Abandoned to God
There are a number of powerful quotes that somehow keep reminding me of my decision to follow Christ and encourage me to maintain perspective. In his journal entry for October 28, 1949, Jim Elliot wrote these famous words:
"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose."
Although being a Christ-follower requires a certain amount of 'giving up', what we ultimately gain is truly eternal and it can not be taken away from us.
Grace spans this world and the next,
Living in Grace,
