I praise the Lord for followers of Christ like Dr. David Platt. His words are truly anointed by the power of the Holy Spirit. He prompts you to live and thrive against the grain for the glory of God's Kingdom. Upon reading CounterCulture (which I could not put down), the words he wrote tugged at my heart, spirit, soul, and mind. As David Platt so eloquently states in the last chapter, let the knowledge of what has been revealed, prompt us to make changes and proclaim the gospel to all. "So let us not stay silent with this gospel. Let's not allow fear in our culture to muzzle our faith in Christ. And let's not enable indecision to rule our lives." We have the knowledge, we have received the gospel of Christ Jesus, now we must share, pray, and pursue His people for His Kingdom, across "all nations." We've ordered Sex Trafficking Prayer Guides to share with our neighbors, families, friends, and church community to bring awareness to the atrocities of sex slavery. We are also in search of ways to minister in pregnancy crisis centers, to bring precious, unborn children of God into this world. Isaiah 6:8, "And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” Thank you Dr. Platt for prompting your brothers and sisters in Christ to step outside of their comfortable lives and reach for the glory of His Kingdom. We are forever changed.
