Jesus prayer was fulfilled today

“Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory…” John 17.24

John Stott loved the priestly prayer that Christ prayed just before his death. Today Christ and John Stott are together. Today he is seeing the full glory of Christ, the glory that he preached and wrote about for the last 70 years.

This is the blessed hope (certainty) that we have as believers in Christ, that one day we too will see him face-to-face. I look forward to that day when I can have tea with Christ in person. Then I will join the many who will be in line to have a cup of tea with Uncle John.

Thank you John R. W. Stott for your faithfulness, your writings, sermons, the ministries to train pastors around the world. Thank you most for the inspiration you have shared and the example you have been to me.
