A Christian Leader bringing honour to the name of Christ

by Anna Blanch on July 27, 2011

The authority by which the Christian leader leads is not power but love, not force but example, not coercion but reasoned persuasion. Leaders have power, but power is safe only in the hands of those who humble themselves to serve. ~ John Stott

Like many around the world I have been blessed by the life and service of John Stott. I never met him. But my life has been enriched by his desire to serve God and his ministry. Heaven has welcomed a good and faithful servant.

I thank God for the life of John Stott (1921-2011).

    I hadn't heard that John had died. May light perpetual shine on him.
