Tim Keller on Five Ways to Imitate John Stott

The US memorial service for John Stott took place last week in Wheaton, where Tim Keller spoke from Hebrews 13:7, ‘Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith’. Keller gave five ways to imitate Stott’s life and faith, as summarised here by Eric McKiddie.

1. Be convicted by his kingdom vision.

2. Be taught by his cultural learning curve.

3. Be chastened by his leadership controversies.

4. Be instructed by his great innovations.

5. Be empowered by the knowledge of his present glory.
