Hebrews 13:7 says, “Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.”

Tim Keller did a great job of giving a tribute to John R.W. Stott during the memorial in Wheaton, IL. It is sad to see many people in this younger generation who do not know the life of John Stott and all the things that he accomplished for the evangelical movement.

John Stott’s balance of great biblical scholarship and his expository preaching enabled the Word of God to illuminate truth to many people around the world. His humility and his willingness to learn from others helped pioneer a greater understanding of the global Church. Even his vision for the Kingdom had a way of inspiring many people to get involved in world evangelization, not just in word but also in deed.

You can read up on Stott’s biography on Wikipedia and on Langham Partnership International. Younger generation, it will do your soul good to read up on this man of God.

Here is the Tim Keller’s tribute to John Stott. It is definitely worth the time.
