I try and do a little reading every day. Oftentimes, it does not work, but I definitely try. A book that was given to me from my super cool brother in law (Kelly Johnson) is the book, “Radical” by Pastor David Platt. David pastors The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, AL. This is a book that I have wanted to read for a while. In the book, David is calling for RADICAL ABANDONMENT from all believers. I have been deeply convicted for the level of complacency that is plaguing the church! The typical church member believes that it is only the pastor or professional in ministry’s job to be sold out for Jesus, but it is for everyone. We tend to think that the radical areas of the Bible are up to the full time church workers when the calling goes out to all believers. “In the process we have unnecessarily (and unbiblically) drawn a line of distinction, assigning the obligations of Christianity to a few while keeping the privileges of Christianity for us all!” David challenges all of us to examine our lives and get in on the radical abandonment that is throughout Scripture. Will you radically abandon yourself for the furtherance of the gospel of Christ? I highly encourage the book to all believers, but be careful, because the book may hurt after you read it.
