THE CHRISTIAN QUOTATION OF THE DAY
Christ, our Light
Monday, July 27, 2020
Commemoration of Brooke Foss Westcott, Bishop of Durham, Teacher, 1901
Commemoration of John R. W. Stott, spiritual writer and teacher, 2011

The world’s opposition is strong and subtle. And behind these things stands the devil, bent on ‘taking men alive’ and keeping them prisoner. For the devil hates the gospel and uses all his strength and cunning to obstruct its progress, now by perverting it in the mouths of those who preach it, now by frightening them into silence through persecution or ridicule, now by persuading them to advance beyond it into some fancy novelty, now by making them so busy with defending the gospel that they have no time to proclaim it.
... John R. W. Stott (1921-2011), Guard the Gospel; the Message of 2 Timothy, Downers Grove, Ill., Inter Varsity Press, 1973, p. 126 (see the book; see also 2 Tim. 2:11-14; Matt. 10:33; John 14:19; 1 Thess. 5:10; 1 John 2:22-23; Jude 1:4; more at Church, Devil, Gospel, Persecution, Preach, Prisoner, Silence, Strength, World)
