So…today was awesome. I had the amazing opportunity to sit in a lecture given by David Platt, pastor of the Church at Brook Hills. He was at Lakeview Baptist Church speaking to a class at the Auburn extension of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He spoke to us about expository preaching and the glory of God. Not only was that a great experience, but then I had the opportunity to eat dinner with him and the interns from Lakeview. It was great to have the chance to sit across the table from him and hear him speak about ministry and answer our questions. Finally, I then was able to hear him speak on the Rich Young Man from Mark 10:17-31. Needless to say, his sermon was challenging to the audience while exalting Christ.
If you have not yet read his book, RADICAL, then you should. I read it this summer and it was an amazing book. I highly recommend it to all who claim to follow Jesus Christ. While it will challenge you, it will also encourage you to truly follow Christ in your daily life.
