Elizabeth Elliot, wife of Jim Elliot of missionary fame, passed away this morning (June 15, 2015) at the age of 88.

Her testimony is located at Elizabeth Elliot (1926-2015) on Justin Taylor’s blog.

I have read a couple of her books as well as watched the movie on Jim and the sacrifice of his life for the cause of Christ.  If only more people would stand and take to heart his statement of “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”

Rest in peace.

You Can’t Have it All

This quote is a good reminder:

You can’t have it all. You are not there to do yourself a favor. You may not have it your way. You opted out of all that when you made up your mind to follow a Master who himself had relinquished all rights, all equality with the Father, and his own will as well. You are called not to be served but to serve, and you can’t serve two masters. You can’t operate in two opposing kingdoms. These kingdoms are the alternatives. Settle it once for all. It is, quite simply, a life and-death choice. – E. Elliot, On Asking God Why
