Managing Monday with John Stott – Take 3

Posted by on Oct 23, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

Several years after his death, the ministry of John Stott (1921-2011) continues to impact many people, most commonly through his writing, with his classic Basic Christianity, his profound study The Cross of Christ and the deep insight shown in I Believe in Preaching, continuing to win him new fans. Stott was one of the key authors of the 1974 Lausanne Covenant, which continues to shape evangelicalism.

This is the third and final post at which we look at some of his insights…

  • We live and die. Christ died and lived. John Stott
  • We must allow the Word of God to confront us, to disturb our security, to undermine our complacency and to overthrow our patterns of thought and behaviour. John Stott
  • Possessions are only the travelling luggage of time; they are not the stuff of eternity. It would be sensible therefore to travel light. John Stott
  • Every Christian should be both conservative and radical; conservative in preserving the faith and radical in applying it. John Stott
  • Our love grows soft if it is not strengthened by truth. And our truth grows hard if it is not softened by love. John Stott

As always, nice chatting…
