Quote from Platt’s ‘Radical Together’ (E)

Yesterday morning, during the message, I quoted from David Platt’s Radical Together. The quote was long, so I will refrain from copying the entire thing here. But the last paragraph I read (hopefully!) helped communicate the point I wanted to make:

“And that’s when I began to realize that the same potential resides in the church in my context. God has given great grace to the church I lead and to many other churches like it. He has given us vast resources, varied gifts, innumerable skills, immeasurable talents, and billions of dollars. If we were willing to take some risks, if we were willing to alter our lifestyles, and if we were willing to organize our churches around taking the Gospel to people who have never heard of Christ, we could see every people group on the planet reached with the Gospel. And in the process, we could be a part of the end of the world.”

Amen.
