Balance - The Word for John Stott (1921-2011)
John Stott passed away yesterday to join the Lord he so faithfully served. This major leader of evangelicalism for decades was characterized by one word: balance. He was thoroughly committed to the gospel, but also sought to live out the gospel in a way that showed God's love for humanity. That is balance.
Writer, speaker and preacher, he also helped to encourage a generation of leaders from his home in the UK. He will be missed, but he has left us a wonderful legacy of truth and compassion preached and lived out in an exemplary life. May many follow in his path.
