save the drowning without getting wet


We believe so strongly in proclamation that we tend to proclaim our message at a distance . . . We appear to be giving advice from the security of the shore to men who are drowning. We do not dive in to help them. We are frightened at the thought of getting wet, and besides, this implies many dangers. We forget that Jesus did not send His salvation from heaven,; He visited us in our humanity.

John Stott
quoted in Passion for the Heart of God, page 153
