Stott’s Thought – Christianity by Definition…

“Christianity by definition begins with the historical figure of Jesus Christ.  If God has spoken, his last and greatest word to the world is Jesus Christ.  If God has acted, his noblest act is the redemption of the world through Jesus Christ.” John Stott – Basic Christianity

I think God has spoken and acted.  He has said and done something beyond our human comprehension.  The gospel we share with our friends and families is less an invitation than it is a declaration.  God declares for all the world that in Christ, he has done for the world what we could never have accomplished on our own.   That is the message we are charged with sharing and blessed for being chosen to convey.
