Jim Elliot

(An earlier (and smaller) version of the eBook: JIM ELLIOT: Recorded Messages)

Background: In early 1956 Christian missionaries Roger Youderian, Nate Saint, Pete Fleming, Ed McCully, and Jim Elliot lost their lives on “Palm Beach” on the banks of the Curaray River in a steamy jungle in Ecuador. They were brutally killed by an unreached tribe they had worked long and hard to reach with God’s love. Many thousands of individuals have come to know Christ in a personal and living way and thousands of others have altered the direction of their lives as a result of the shocking massacre and the many articles and books written about it. Even the Auca Indians who thrust those fatal spears have seen a significant portion of their number come to know Jesus Christ.

This unique book contains transcripts of four messages given by Jim Elliot before leaving for the mission field. The first two messages are hard-hitting straightforward talks to seventh and eighth-grade students. The first is about “Spiritual Desire” including its nature and how to increase it. The second discusses “The Effects of Sin in a Christian.” The third message, entitled “Peter,” is an exposition of 1 Peter 1:3. The fourth, “God’s Prophet,” traces the concept and role of a prophet with the primary focus being Jesus Christ, the Father’s ultimate Prophet.

Robert Lloyd Russell grew up in the same local church as Jim Elliot and was a friend of the Elliot family for many years. Jim was one of his childhood Sunday School teachers and there was a period of several weeks when Russell and his parents and siblings lived with the Elliots in their home. One of Jim’s brothers, “Dr. Bob,” officiated at Mr. Russell’s wedding.

Through the development of two graphic models the author provides insights regarding the interrelationship of fundamentals of the Christian faith.

The “Christian Life Model” portrays the life of a disciple through the interrelationship of prayer, the Word of God, obedience, fellowship, witnessing, and intimacy with God. The result is a life which emits the fragrance of Christ (2 Corinthians 2:14). This model is about victorious Christian living. Included in this section are the author’s detailed acrostics for fellowship, obedience, power, prayer, witness, and the Word.

The “Christian Guidance Model” shows the interrelationship of the Christian Life Model and one’s inner conviction, Godly counsel, and the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  All of this is shown against the setting of natural abilities and spiritual gifts, as well as opportunities and circumstances. The final result is a disciple who has morphed into one of Christ’s jewels (Malachi 3:17). The model provides a clear path to effective decision-making which pleases God. 

In summary, this book enables the reader to more fully obey the command of Ephesians 5:17 – “Do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.” 

As part of the “Christian Concepts Series” by international award-winning author Robert Lloyd Russell, Thy Will Be Done On Earth is made up of short chapters, each  followed by a “Think and Grow” section. The series is  great for people on the go, for individual devotional study, and as the text in group study.
