Just a month ago, I referenced the work of John Stott, author of Basic Christianity and other excellent works. Yesterday, July 27, at 3:15 p.m. London time, John Stott finished his 90 year sojourn on earth and entered the presence of his Lord.
I invite you to read the excellent eulogy by Tim Stafford describing the world wide cross generational influence of this humble servant of Jesus. It is long as obituaries go, but more than worth your time to read it to the end. Few have had such a positive impact as John Stott. You will benefit much from his life and teaching.
And don’t forget! In the face of death, we do not “grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him.” 1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14
