Managing Monday with John Stott

Posted by on Oct 9, 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 are some of his insights…

  • The Gospel is good news of mercy to the undeserving. The symbol of the religion of Jesus is the cross, not the scales. John Stott
  • Humility before God is nothing but the truth. John Stott
  • We have a fatal tendency to exaggerate the faults of others and minimize the gravity of our own. John Stott
  • Every heresy is due to an overemphasis upon some truth, without allowing other truths to qualify and balance it. John Stott
  • The essence of sin is man substituting himself for God, while the essence of salvation is God substituting himself for man. John Stott

As always, nice chatting…
