I'm to be a Mirror

St. James Park, London -- 2008

"'I must act in a holy manner, not for reward or appearance but because of God's nature. The Law continually reminds me that commandments are to be kept, not for their own sake, but for God's sake. I will be righteous then, because God's nature is such. His character determines my conduct.'" Jim Elliot (missionary martyr), as quoted by his wife Elisabeth Elliot, in Shadow of the Almighty: The Life and Testament of Jim Elliot, pg. 113
