“Christian discipleship is much more radical than a system of beliefs, good works, and religious practices. No image can do it justice but death and resurrection. For when we lose ourselves we find ourselves, and when we die, we live….” – John Stott, The Incomparable Christ
John RW Stott passed away yesterday at the age of 90 and at the close of a humble and valiant life. He has been a friend and mentor to me through his writings for years. Very few authors have influenced me to the extent of “Uncle John”. I’ve read The Cross of Christ countless times. His life and life’s work have indeed left an indelible mark upon the lives of countless Christians and upon the Kingdom of God.
Glory to God!
