Quote from the Books Tuesday {9.28.10}

Can you believe it’s Tuesday already?  The days sure go by fast!  Anyway, I’m ready to share another quote with you today.  I’m having a lot of fun doing “Quote from the Books Tuesday”  Average reading consists of about a book a week for me, these days.  There’s just so many good books out there and I haven’t read nearly as many of them as I would like to…but hey, I suppose I’m making progress =)

Today’s quote is from Tread Upon the Lion by Sophie de la Haye.  It’s the story of Tommie Titcombe who was a missionary to Africa. 

Give yourself to God, that out of your service, whether long or short, some light may break on people still in darkness, and some glory come to Christ our Lord.

It’s a short quote, but a good challenge for all of us.  As Jim Elliot once said,  “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. ”  So today, freely give what you can’t truly keep!  Serve God completely and unreservedly, and glorify Christ who is worthy of all glory.   Only when we do that, are we living for any true, eternal purpose.

  1. Convicting quote, Amy! Thank you for sharing it. And the one that you shared from Jim Elliot is a favorite of mine as well. I really appreciated what you shared, and may we truly learn what it is to deny ourselves to live fully for Christ!
