Managing Monday with John Stott: Take 2

Posted by on Oct 16, 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.

Here is a second selection of some of his insights…

  • Until you see the cross as that which is done by you, you will never appreciate that it is done for you. John Stott
  • Of course it costs to be a Christian. But it costs much more not to be. John Stott
  • To evangelize does not mean to win converts… But simply to announce the good news, irrespective of the results. John Stott
  • Christian giving is to be marked by self-sacrifice and self-forgetfulness, not by self-congratulation. John Stott

As always, nice chatting…
