keeping Jesus #1

Here's a link to a good little Rick Warren article about keeping Jesus Christ our main priority. Here's a blurb:
Jim Elliot, the missionary martyred by the Indians down in Ecuador, said, “He is no fool to give up that which he cannot keep for that which he cannot lose.”

So what are you afraid to give up? What’s gotten out of priority in your life and in your ministry? Has a relationship with Christ been replaced by your ministry goals?

BTW, the movie based on his life "The End of the Spear" is fantastic. I loaned it to Tom & Laura. They still have it if you want to see it.
