David Platt

What exactly did Jesus mean when He said, "Go and make disciples of all nations"? David Platt tackles what that phrase meant to the New Testament believer, and then in turn, what that means for us today. We'll be reminded that Christ-followers have been mandated to spread the Gospel around the world and that we should expect opposition.


Empowering the Poor, Part 2 - Monday, June 18, 2018

When your stomach starts to rumble, it's only natural to start thinking about getting a snack. As David Platt continues his examination of the Good Samaritan, he points out that just like we meet our own physical needs, so we should meet the needs of those around us. We will find that when our hearts are transformed by the mercy of Christ, we will be inspired to show radical mercy that is unlike anything else in this world.

Empower the Poor, Part 1 - Friday, June 15, 2018

When a lawyer approached Jesus and asked what was required to inherit eternal life, Jesus' gave an answer that still resonates today. David Platt describes this encounter and takes us through the parable of the Good Samaritan. As we consider the Samaritan's actions for the helpless stranger, we'll be asked to consider who in our lives might need some radical assistance.

The Urgency of Eternity, Part 2 - Thursday, June 14, 2018

The decision a man, woman, or child makes about Jesus is the most important decision they will ever make--a decision that will have eternal ramifications. As David Platt draws our series to a close, we'll look at how to tie all these various threads together into a persuasive call to repentance. And, though not everyone we speak to will make an immediate decision for Christ, we will learn how to be lovingly persistent and honest with our friends and family.

The Urgency of Eternity, Part 1 - Wednesday, June 13, 2018

It's easy to get lost in thoughts of heaven and an eternity in God's presence when thinking about sharing the Gospel. And while all that is true, David Platt reminds us that we need to keep in mind the eternal consequences for those who do not choose to follow Jesus. In this frank discussion, we'll dive in to what the Bible teaches about the reality of hell and those who will spend their eternity there.

The Necessity of Faith, Part 2 - Tuesday, June 12, 2018

When it comes to sharing the Gospel with those around us, we all have a unique too--a tool that no one else has. Our personal story of how God saved us. David Platt continues our look at evangelism by showing how we can use our own personal story of finding Christ in our witnessing to others. We'll also look at specific ways to share the Gospel story with our children.

The Necessity of Faith, Part 1 - Monday, June 11, 2018

It's not uncommon to hear a person talk about their faith in Jesus Christ. But what one person means by "faith" may be different than what another person means. And, as David Platt explains, if we are to be God's witnesses to the world, it's important that we have a clear idea of the role faith plays in salvation.

The Sufficiency of Christ, Part 2 - Friday, June 8, 2018

David Platt shares practical advice on how to weave the threads of Jesus' work into our conversations with others. Whether you are witnessing to family members or co-workers at the water cooler, it's possible to introduce them to Jesus in a way that will change their lives forever.

The Sufficiency of Christ, Part 1 - Thursday, June 7, 2018

It stands to reason that the most complicated tasks require the most effort to accomplish. Neil Armstrong didn't get to the moon on his own. So when it comes to the salvation of our soul, we must be expected to help with the effort, right? Wrong! As David Platt explains, Jesus Christ Himself is sufficient to bring salvation to the world. We'll look at how the Bible describes the work of Jesus in providing this unique gift to mankind.

The Sinfulness of Man, Part 2 - Wednesday, June 6, 2018

We are all tempted to explain away our sin--we were provoked, we were tired, we were stressed, the list goes on and on. However, as David Platt explains, sin is rooted in the heart and leads to eternal spiritual death. Correctly diagnosing the sinful human condition is key to effectively sharing the Gospel and ultimately communicating our need for a savior.
