Excerpt from David Platt’s book Radical.
Chapter 4-pg. 82
If you were to meet Daniel, Jeff, Ed, or Patty, you might not see anything extraordinary about them. These are unassuming people who have achieved varying levels of success in this world. But all of them have this in common: They believe they were created for more than a Christian spin on the American dream.
They believe the purpose of their lives is deeper than having a nice job, raising a decent family, living a comfortable life, and tacking church attendance onto the end of it. They believe Jesus has called them to a much higher plane and given them a much greater dream. They believe God has shown them great grace in order that he might use them to accomplish the glorious, global, God-exalting purpose that has been primary since the beginning of time, and they don’t want to settle for anything less than radical abandonment to that purpose.
Something to think and pray about.
