Key Words: knoweth that I lie not
No doubt Paul was dedicated to God! No man could go through what he went through without a well-grounded desire to live for God.
Trials do not make us; they simply reveal what we really are. If we are not real in our Christianity, then we will certainly quit.
Ernest Lowe wrote the following in regard to the dedication of his friend, Jim Elliot.
“Jim Elliot was a classmate of mine in college. He was a young wrestler, good-looking, and tough of body. He was also a deeply spiritual young man. Every morning he arose at five or five-thirty and read his Bible and made notes in his diary. One day, in his praying about the people overseas, he thought to himself, ‘Why shouldn’t I go? There is one minister for every 500 people in the United States and one for every 500,000 overseas. Why shouldn’t I go?’ And he went. He went to the Auca Indians in Ecuador and he was murdered. After his death, they found, scattered along the shore, a river-soaked diary. In it Jim Elliot had written, “Make me a crisis man, O Lord; not just a sign-post on the highway of life, but a fork in the road so that men who meet me will come to know Jesus Christ.’”
