The Call of Our This Generation

April 16, 2012

It has already been said that the sermon below by David Platt is perhaps the greatest missions message ever preached. I was a freshman in college when the buzz about John Piper’s sermon “Doing Missions When Dying Is Gain” filled the campus of University of Mobile. Not long after that, I embarked on my first cross-cultural mission trip and have not been the same.

I was privileged to hear this with 8,000 other folks at T4G last week. But more than that, I eagerly long to be in the company of those who heed the message as what I anticipate will be the call of this generation.

You can download the audio or read the live-blogging notes of Justin Taylor, or watch the video below.  If you have not listened or watched this message, please carve out an hour of your life and have the Spirit ruin you for the nations.

David Platt Resource Library

April 15, 2011

One of the most used search terms for my blog over the past two years has been variations of  “David Platt”. This page has been accessed nearly 8,000 times, averaging roughly ten people a day, even though many of the links have since been outdated as The Church at Brook Hills changed and updated their web page.

I just found out last night about a (new?) website called Disciple-Making International that literally has scores of information and resources including a blog and a resource directory.  As a big fan of family worship, I encourage you to check out their 52-week family worship guide walking through the Bible from Genesis through Revelation.  They also have a basic introduction to family worship for those unfamiliar with it.

Because there is so much on this website worth checking out, I want to be selective here and highlight a few that have encouraged me personally:

* All Things Secret Church
* Abide Sermon Series
* Radical Sermon Series
* LifeBlood Sermon Series (What is the Gospel?)
* Covenant Community Sermon Series
* Global Gospel Sermon Series

Each of the sermons in the sermon series provides you the option of watching, listening, reading, or obtaining a small group study guide.  God has obviously raised up David and given him a generational platform to proclaim Christ and call us to live wholeheartedly for him and those who have never heard His name.  I pray these resources are accessed by many and leave a lasting gospel legacy for the next generation.

Do We Really Believe What We’re Saying?

March 23, 2011

David Platt, currently ministering in northern India, asks a really important question.  May we answer with our lives.

Radical: Responding to the Bibical Call to Follow Jesus – David Platt

April 30, 2010

As I mentioned in my last post, I am really grateful for the prophetic voices of Francis Chan and David Platt, and moreso by the fact that they are backing up their exhortations with radical demonstration.

David Platt at 20/20 Collegiate Conference

February 6, 2010

David Platt begins his message with this video clip.  Give is a look.

Below is a summary of the key points Platt made in his message this morning.  When first personal pronouns are used, they are quotes of David speaking . . .

The last few years have been a crisis of belief in my own life, and it has revolved around the Bible. “Do I believe that it is true?”  Not if I believe it is accurate or authentic, but if I believe it to be true.  If it is, then the implications of our lives are staggering.

David Platt on the Gospel

March 31, 2009

David Platt, lead pastor of The Church at Brookhills, is a preacher whose podcast you should already subscribed.  In 2008, he preached through a couple of series relating to the centrality and sufficiency of the gospel, and I wanted to post them here for you to check out if you have never listened or benefited from Platt’s preaching ministry.

Two things I love about Brookhills is their willingness to let go of their resources and that these resources are gospel-centered and community-oriented.  The links below provide the MP3 download as well as the study notes for each sermon (except one).  I haven’t listened to all of these sermons, but the ones I have thus far have been really convicting and edifying.  When we talk about the recovery of the gospel in the SBC, these sermon series are good examples of where to start.

David Platt on the Great Commission

September 7, 2008

David Platt, lead pastor of The Church at Brookhills, was the guest preacher for the 2009 Great Commission Lectures at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.  From those in attendance, Platt’s messages were powerfully used to impact the lives of all who were in attendance.  I encourage you to download them and listen for your own advantage.  Here are the links (MP3s):

1.  The Presence of Christ in the Great Commission (Said at Southern live-blogging)

2.  The Command of Christ in the Great Commission (Said at Southern live-blogging)
