One of the most powerful sermon series I have listened to in my life is David Platt’s Radical Series [You can listen to them here]. It will challenge you and make you uncomfortable in all the ways most of us American Christians need to be made uncomfortable. What I appreciate is that Platt does this with the gospel, so there is hope for us and for our world in desperate need.
I am excited that Platt has put this into book form to be released in May. You can download and read the first chapter here. Here is a short excerpt:
This brings us to the crucial question for every professing or potential follower of Jesus: Do we really believe he is worth abandoning everything for? Do you and I really believe that Jesus is so good, so satisfying, and so rewarding that we will leave all we have and all we own and all we are in order to find our fullness in him?
Do you and I believe him enough to obey him and to follow him wherever he leads, even when the crowds in our culture—and maybe in our churches—turn the other way?
