David Platt in SBTS Chapel

I believe David Platt (@plattdavid) to be the most passionate and compelling missions-mobilizer in Southern Baptist life today. He brought a powerful and convicting message in Southern Seminary’s chapel service that I think everyone needs to hear. His text is Luke 9:57-62, a text which he argues presents us with three questions about our priorities:

1. Are we going to choose comfort or the cross? (Luke 9:57-58)
2. Are we going to settle for maintenance or are we going to sacrifice for mission? (Luke 9:59-60)
3. Are our lives and ministries going to be marked by indecisive minds or undivided hearts? (Luke 9:61-62)

Don’t listen to this if you don’t want your world shaken-up. Don’t miss this one.

    Thanks for posting this, Denny. I was able to hear him in Jacksonville at the Pastor’s conference, where he preached one of the most conviction-filled messages I ever heard.
    Hope you’re doing well!

    My wife was 19 and I was 21 when we got married. I personally think that the very fact that there was less time for us to build individual lives has benefited us.

    OOPS. I think my computer had a brain fart. That comment was meant for your marriage article! I have been encouraged by what I’ve jeard from Mr. Platt though.:)

    I agree, this is a powerful message. I’m halfway through the book David Platt just published; “Radical”, which will be released for sale tomorrow (5/4/10). I’m reading a pre-release special I got in the mail.
    The book contains most of the message in the video plus so much more. I pray that God continues to use both in a significant way to further His kingdom work and get all the glory he deserves. Thankfully, He’s using David Platt’s offerings to be of great significance.
