Biblical Foundations with Cultural Implications

Wednesday evening over 1,000 of us were enlightened and motivated as David Platt, President of the International Mission Board, spoke at the appointment service for 25 men and women being sent around the world to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I thought you would also enjoy the highlights from another message David recently preached in the chapel at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary as reported in the Winter 2015 edition of Southwestern News. Preaching from Genesis 1-3, Platt identified four biblical foundations with cultural implications for the church today.

“Based upon biblical foundations clearly laid on the opening pages of history, I challenge you to engage in the battle on the front lines in our culture, from abortion to poverty; from slavery to sexual immorality,” Platt said. “To refuse to pick and choose which battles you’re going to stand up and speak out on and which ones you’re going to stay silent on.”

Beginning with the biblical foundation that God creates people as a demonstration of His glory, Platt explained that such a foundation’s cultural implication is that Christians must fight against abortion. Citing statistics indicating that there are 130,000 abortions around the world every day, Platt said, “I do not believe it is an overstatement to call abortion a modern holocaust.”

The second biblical foundation is that God designs people for the display of His gospel, the implication being that Christians must flee sexual immorality and defend sexual complementarity within marriage for the sake of the Gospel.

“This is one of those areas in our day where the word of God comes up totally against the patterns of our culture,” Platt said, “and we’re forced to make a decision: are we going to believe the Bible or not? Are we going to trust God who says we all have personal worth, are made in His image, and yet have different roles in a way that does not devalue worth but actually exalts worth?”

The third biblical foundation is that God judges people by His righteous law. The implication, then, is that Christians must work for justice in the world as they speak about the Judge of the world. Platt said Christians need to open their eyes to the desperate poverty and gross injustice in the world.

The final biblical foundation is that God pursues people with His redeeming love. The implication is that Christians must give their lives and lead their churches to pursue the 6,000 people groups still unreached by God’s redeeming love.

“When our time is done,” Platt said, “may it be said of you and me that we loved our Lord and led His church for the demonstration of His glory and the display of His Gospel amongst the most pressing issues of our day, including those people who’ve never even heard the Gospel.”

  • Presentation + Transformation = Revelation!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “… present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:1-2

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    Some people say, “Oh, I’m searching to know the will of God.” Listen, it’s not your job to find the will of God. It’s God’s job to reveal His will to you. It is your job simply to present yourself to Him.

    If you have been conformed to this world, you will not know the will of God; therefore, you will not do the will of God.

    Most Christians need to be transformed into the likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ. Here’s the formula for knowing the will of God. Presentation plus transformation equals revelation.

    ACTION POINT:
    You want to know the will of God? Present yourself to God. Let Him change you. Then you won’t have to find the will of God; the will of God will find you.

Biblical Foundations with Cultural Implications

Wednesday evening over 1,000 of us were enlightened and motivated as David Platt, President of the International Mission Board, spoke at the appointment service for 25 men and women being sent around the world to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I thought you would also enjoy the highlights from another message David recently preached in the chapel at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary as reported in the Winter 2015 edition of Southwestern News. Preaching from Genesis 1-3, Platt identified four biblical foundations with cultural implications for the church today.

“Based upon biblical foundations clearly laid on the opening pages of history, I challenge you to engage in the battle on the front lines in our culture, from abortion to poverty; from slavery to sexual immorality,” Platt said. “To refuse to pick and choose which battles you’re going to stand up and speak out on and which ones you’re going to stay silent on.”

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” Galatians 5:16

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    When God made you, He gave you certain impulses—like the impulse of hunger and thirst, the need for rest, the need for achievement, and the need for pleasure and sex.

    All these are God-given instincts. And there is nothing dirty or impure about any of those.

    But the flesh takes these things and distorts, perverts, twists, and misuses them. Hunger turns to gluttony; sex turns to immorality; the need for recreation turns to debauchery; and the need for rest turns to laziness.

    The flesh, that old nature, takes the things of God and perverts and twists them and tries to get us to fulfill a legitimate desire in an illegitimate way.

    ACTION POINT:
    How will we avoid the flesh taking over? Look at our verse: “Walk in the Spirit, and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.” When you are submitting moment by moment to the Holy Spirit, the flesh will not be in the driver’s seat.

Biblical Foundations with Cultural Implications

Wednesday evening over 1,000 of us were enlightened and motivated as David Platt, President of the International Mission Board, spoke at the appointment service for 25 men and women being sent around the world to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I thought you would also enjoy the highlights from another message David recently preached in the chapel at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary as reported in the Winter 2015 edition of Southwestern News. Preaching from Genesis 1-3, Platt identified four biblical foundations with cultural implications for the church today.

“Based upon biblical foundations clearly laid on the opening pages of history, I challenge you to engage in the battle on the front lines in our culture, from abortion to poverty; from slavery to sexual immorality,” Platt said. “To refuse to pick and choose which battles you’re going to stand up and speak out on and which ones you’re going to stay silent on.”

Beginning with the biblical foundation that God creates people as a demonstration of His glory, Platt explained that such a foundation’s cultural implication is that Christians must fight against abortion. Citing statistics indicating that there are 130,000 abortions around the world every day, Platt said, “I do not believe it is an overstatement to call abortion a modern holocaust.”

The second biblical foundation is that God designs people for the display of His gospel, the implication being that Christians must flee sexual immorality and defend sexual complementarity within marriage for the sake of the Gospel.

“This is one of those areas in our day where the word of God comes up totally against the patterns of our culture,” Platt said, “and we’re forced to make a decision: are we going to believe the Bible or not? Are we going to trust God who says we all have personal worth, are made in His image, and yet have different roles in a way that does not devalue worth but actually exalts worth?”

The third biblical foundation is that God judges people by His righteous law. The implication, then, is that Christians must work for justice in the world as they speak about the Judge of the world. Platt said Christians need to open their eyes to the desperate poverty and gross injustice in the world.

The final biblical foundation is that God pursues people with His redeeming love. The implication is that Christians must give their lives and lead their churches to pursue the 6,000 people groups still unreached by God’s redeeming love.

“When our time is done,” Platt said, “may it be said of you and me that we loved our Lord and led His church for the demonstration of His glory and the display of His Gospel amongst the most pressing issues of our day, including those people who’ve never even heard the Gospel.”

  • Love Not the World!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”1 John 2:15

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    It stands to reason: if you love health, you’re going to hate germs. If you love flowers, you’ll hate weeds. If you love cleanliness, you’ll hate dirt. If you love God, you will hate sin.

    And so the Bible says, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.” What is worldliness? And why should a Christian not love this world?

    Three reasons: Number one, because of the character of the world—what it is. Number two, because of the corruption of the world—what it does. Number three, because of the condemnation of the world—where it’s headed.

    ACTION POINT:
    If we’re not to “love” this world, what, then are we to love? Jesus said, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:37-39

  • Unbelief!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:18

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    Men don’t go to hell primarily because they lie, steal, or cheat. It’s much worse than that! Men go to hell because of unbelief. Unbelief is the major sin—the mother sin, the father sin, the sin out of which all other sins grow. It is the one sin that will damn you and send you to hell.

    Unbelief is a terrible, horrible sin. It’s never an intellectual matter; it’s always a moral matter.

    ACTION POINT:
    Can you think of any sin greater than to point the finger of unbelief at God and say, “You lie!” There is no greater sin than to aim the gun of unbelief at the Christ on the cross and refuse to receive Him.

Biblical Foundations with Cultural Implications

Wednesday evening over 1,000 of us were enlightened and motivated as David Platt, President of the International Mission Board, spoke at the appointment service for 25 men and women being sent around the world to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I thought you would also enjoy the highlights from another message David recently preached in the chapel at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary as reported in the Winter 2015 edition of Southwestern News. Preaching from Genesis 1-3, Platt identified four biblical foundations with cultural implications for the church today.

“Based upon biblical foundations clearly laid on the opening pages of history, I challenge you to engage in the battle on the front lines in our culture, from abortion to poverty; from slavery to sexual immorality,” Platt said. “To refuse to pick and choose which battles you’re going to stand up and speak out on and which ones you’re going to stay silent on.”

Beginning with the biblical foundation that God creates people as a demonstration of His glory, Platt explained that such a foundation’s cultural implication is that Christians must fight against abortion. Citing statistics indicating that there are 130,000 abortions around the world every day, Platt said, “I do not believe it is an overstatement to call abortion a modern holocaust.”

The second biblical foundation is that God designs people for the display of His gospel, the implication being that Christians must flee sexual immorality and defend sexual complementarity within marriage for the sake of the Gospel.

“This is one of those areas in our day where the word of God comes up totally against the patterns of our culture,” Platt said, “and we’re forced to make a decision: are we going to believe the Bible or not? Are we going to trust God who says we all have personal worth, are made in His image, and yet have different roles in a way that does not devalue worth but actually exalts worth?”

The third biblical foundation is that God judges people by His righteous law. The implication, then, is that Christians must work for justice in the world as they speak about the Judge of the world. Platt said Christians need to open their eyes to the desperate poverty and gross injustice in the world.

The final biblical foundation is that God pursues people with His redeeming love. The implication is that Christians must give their lives and lead their churches to pursue the 6,000 people groups still unreached by God’s redeeming love.

“When our time is done,” Platt said, “may it be said of you and me that we loved our Lord and led His church for the demonstration of His glory and the display of His Gospel amongst the most pressing issues of our day, including those people who’ve never even heard the Gospel.”

  • You’re Too Late!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, ‘It is finished,’ and He bowed His head and gave up the ghost.”John 19:30

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    Evangelist Billy Sunday preached in tent meetings. It is told that one time after a meeting had ended, a young man who had been in the services and under great conviction found Billy Sunday and said, “Oh Mister Sunday, I need to be saved. What can I do to be saved?”

    Billy said, “I’m sorry. You’re too late.” The young man said, “Oh, but I wanted to be saved. I should have been saved. What must I do to be saved?”

    And Billy Sunday said, “You’re too late to do anything to be saved, for Jesus has already done it all. It’s finished. All you need to do is receive what He’s already done,” and he led the young man to Jesus.

    ACTION POINT:
    It is finished. All you need to do is receive what Jesus has already done.

Biblical Foundations with Cultural Implications

Wednesday evening over 1,000 of us were enlightened and motivated as David Platt, President of the International Mission Board, spoke at the appointment service for 25 men and women being sent around the world to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I thought you would also enjoy the highlights from another message David recently preached in the chapel at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary as reported in the Winter 2015 edition of Southwestern News. Preaching from Genesis 1-3, Platt identified four biblical foundations with cultural implications for the church today.

  • Rubbed the “Right” Way!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    There are some people who say, “Well, I come to church on Sunday to feel good. I don’t want some man up there ranting, raving, and pointing his finger at me, telling me I’ve got to repent and get right with God and all that business.”

    Billy Sunday, a great fire-eating preacher of yesteryear, once preached an excoriating message against sin. When he finished, somebody said, “Billy, you better tone it down a little bit. You’re rubbing the fur on the cat the wrong way.” He said, “Well, the old cat is headed towards hell! If she’d turn around, I’d be rubbing it the right way.”

    ACTION POINT:
    Does the truth of God rub you the wrong way? Then it’s time to turn around.

Biblical Foundations with Cultural Implications

Wednesday evening over 1,000 of us were enlightened and motivated as David Platt, President of the International Mission Board, spoke at the appointment service for 25 men and women being sent around the world to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I thought you would also enjoy the highlights from another message David recently preached in the chapel at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary as reported in the Winter 2015 edition of Southwestern News. Preaching from Genesis 1-3, Platt identified four biblical foundations with cultural implications for the church today.

“Based upon biblical foundations clearly laid on the opening pages of history, I challenge you to engage in the battle on the front lines in our culture, from abortion to poverty; from slavery to sexual immorality,” Platt said. “To refuse to pick and choose which battles you’re going to stand up and speak out on and which ones you’re going to stay silent on.”

Beginning with the biblical foundation that God creates people as a demonstration of His glory, Platt explained that such a foundation’s cultural implication is that Christians must fight against abortion. Citing statistics indicating that there are 130,000 abortions around the world every day, Platt said, “I do not believe it is an overstatement to call abortion a modern holocaust.”

The second biblical foundation is that God designs people for the display of His gospel, the implication being that Christians must flee sexual immorality and defend sexual complementarity within marriage for the sake of the Gospel.

“This is one of those areas in our day where the word of God comes up totally against the patterns of our culture,” Platt said, “and we’re forced to make a decision: are we going to believe the Bible or not? Are we going to trust God who says we all have personal worth, are made in His image, and yet have different roles in a way that does not devalue worth but actually exalts worth?”

The third biblical foundation is that God judges people by His righteous law. The implication, then, is that Christians must work for justice in the world as they speak about the Judge of the world. Platt said Christians need to open their eyes to the desperate poverty and gross injustice in the world.

The final biblical foundation is that God pursues people with His redeeming love. The implication is that Christians must give their lives and lead their churches to pursue the 6,000 people groups still unreached by God’s redeeming love.

“When our time is done,” Platt said, “may it be said of you and me that we loved our Lord and led His church for the demonstration of His glory and the display of His Gospel amongst the most pressing issues of our day, including those people who’ve never even heard the Gospel.”

  • It’s Your Fault!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    Suppose you were deathly sick and the only cure was a very rare and costly medicine. Yet you had no money.

    Your doctor leaves and is gone for several days. When he comes back, there are dark circles under his eyes, his hands are trembling, and his clothing is torn and blood-stained.

    The doctor holds out a vial of the medicine. “I went to secure this medicine for you. I withdrew my life savings. In my hurry, I wrecked my automobile. The blood on my shirt is that of my only son who was with me and was killed in the accident. Here is the cure. Take it, and you’ll live.”

    Suppose you took that medicine, dashed it on the floor, and said, “Doctor, if I die, it will be your fault.”

    ACTION POINT:
    This is exactly what God has done for mankind. God offered His Son so that no one has to be lost. But we must accept His gift. Have you accepted it?

Biblical Foundations with Cultural Implications

Wednesday evening over 1,000 of us were enlightened and motivated as David Platt, President of the International Mission Board, spoke at the appointment service for 25 men and women being sent around the world to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I thought you would also enjoy the highlights from another message David recently preached in the chapel at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary as reported in the Winter 2015 edition of Southwestern News.

  • My Burden is Light!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest … for My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”Matthew 11:28, 30

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    I’ve heard it said so many times that it’s hard to be a Christian. Where did you get that? You didn’t get it out of the Word of God. It’s not hard to be a Christian.

    Listen, the Bible says that “the way of the transgressor is hard” (Proverbs 13:15), but it’s not hard to be a Christian. I’m having a wonderful time serving the Lord Jesus.

    You say, “You mean there’s no suffering?” There’s suffering in this world whether you’re saved or lost. You’re not going to get out unbent, unbloodied, or unbowed. But I want to tell you, there is joy in the Lord Jesus Christ; and Jesus is the One who makes the sufferings of this life worth it all.

    ACTION POINT If you are struggling and straining today to “lead the Christian life.” then something is out of whack. Jesus said, “I will give you rest.” Come to Him right now in humility and lay down the heavy burden.

Biblical Foundations with Cultural Implications

Wednesday evening over 1,000 of us were enlightened and motivated as David Platt, President of the International Mission Board, spoke at the appointment service for 25 men and women being sent around the world to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I thought you would also enjoy the highlights from another message David recently preached in the chapel at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary as reported in the Winter 2015 edition of Southwestern News. Preaching from Genesis 1-3, Platt identified four biblical foundations with cultural implications for the church today.

“Based upon biblical foundations clearly laid on the opening pages of history, I challenge you to engage in the battle on the front lines in our culture, from abortion to poverty; from slavery to sexual immorality,” Platt said. “To refuse to pick and choose which battles you’re going to stand up and speak out on and which ones you’re going to stay silent on.”

Beginning with the biblical foundation that God creates people as a demonstration of His glory, Platt explained that such a foundation’s cultural implication is that Christians must fight against abortion. Citing statistics indicating that there are 130,000 abortions around the world every day, Platt said, “I do not believe it is an overstatement to call abortion a modern holocaust.”

The second biblical foundation is that God designs people for the display of His gospel, the implication being that Christians must flee sexual immorality and defend sexual complementarity within marriage for the sake of the Gospel.

“This is one of those areas in our day where the word of God comes up totally against the patterns of our culture,” Platt said, “and we’re forced to make a decision: are we going to believe the Bible or not? Are we going to trust God who says we all have personal worth, are made in His image, and yet have different roles in a way that does not devalue worth but actually exalts worth?”

The third biblical foundation is that God judges people by His righteous law. The implication, then, is that Christians must work for justice in the world as they speak about the Judge of the world. Platt said Christians need to open their eyes to the desperate poverty and gross injustice in the world.

The final biblical foundation is that God pursues people with His redeeming love. The implication is that Christians must give their lives and lead their churches to pursue the 6,000 people groups still unreached by God’s redeeming love.

“When our time is done,” Platt said, “may it be said of you and me that we loved our Lord and led His church for the demonstration of His glory and the display of His Gospel amongst the most pressing issues of our day, including those people who’ve never even heard the Gospel.”

PLEASE REMEMBER JERUSALEM AND ISRAEL!

  • It’s You I Love!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    A wife borrowed her husband’s brand new car, and she wrecked it. It didn’t hurt her, but she just demolished the car. She felt so bad. She reached in the glove compartment where they kept their insurance papers and got them out.

    When she opened the papers, there was a note right in the middle written by her husband. I think it’s one of the sweetest things I’ve ever heard. He had written, “Remember, Sweetheart, it’s you I love.”

    Isn’t that great? He was saying, “This car is not important. Honey, you’re the important one.”

    ACTION POINT:
    I want to tell you, you may have wrecked your life, but God says, “It’s you I love.” God loves you. Whatever comes your way today, you must believe that.

Biblical Foundations with Cultural Implications

Wednesday evening over 1,000 of us were enlightened and motivated as David Platt, President of the International Mission Board, spoke at the appointment service for 25 men and women being sent around the world to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I thought you would also enjoy the highlights from another message David recently preached in the chapel at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary as reported in the Winter 2015 edition of Southwestern News. Preaching from Genesis 1-3, Platt identified four biblical foundations with cultural implications for the church today.

“Based upon biblical foundations clearly laid on the opening pages of history, I challenge you to engage in the battle on the front lines in our culture, from abortion to poverty; from slavery to sexual immorality,” Platt said. “To refuse to pick and choose which battles you’re going to stand up and speak out on and which ones you’re going to stay silent on.”

  • An Open Bible!”

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “Preach the Word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.” 2 Timothy 4:2

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    Something that really bothers me is to go to church and hear somebody stand up and preach without an open Bible. Or maybe he will quote a text and close the Bible and then make a speech.

    What we need to do is to read the book and study it. Let me tell you what I think preaching the Word of God is. I think it is taking a passage of Scripture, reading that passage, analyzing it, organizing it, illustrating it, and applying it.

    I believe there’s a famine in the land today for that kind of preaching, where people can understand the Bible. That is the kind of preaching that will ultimately build great Christians.

    ACTION POINT:
    When you heed the Word of God, it is going to produce three things. First, sorrow. Then joy. And then obedience—just obey the Word of God.
