Next Tuesday, September 6, we will begin our chapter-by-chapter discussion of David Platt’s Book, “Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream”
In a self reflective moment, Platt begins the book with a couple simple questions:
Am I going to believe Jesus? Am I going to obey Jesus?
My answers to these questions and your answers to these questions can radically change our lives, relationships, churches, schools, communities, and the world.
I want to consistently live a life of integrity before God and others. The ability to do this ultimately depends on my daily choices to believe and obey God in the “little” areas. Christianity is both a spiritual calling and responsibility, and I believe that God is worth my commitment.
Do you agree? Please join me as I’m looking forward to finishing the book this weekend and discussing it with you.
