JOHN STOTT QUOTE OF THE DAY
The greatest single reason for the church's evangelistic
disobedience centres in the church's doubts. We are not
sure if our own sins are forgiven. We are not sure if the
gospel is true. And so, because we doubt, we are dumb. We
need to hear again Christ's word of peace, and see again
his hands and his side. Once we are glad that we have seen
the Lord, and once we have clearly recognized him as our
crucified and risen Saviour, then nothing and no-one will
be able to silence us.

One Task", ed. C. F. Henry and W. S. Mooneyham
