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.”

  • What Did You Pray For This Morning?

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. And he killed James, the brother of John, with the sword. And…he proceeded further to take Peter also…. And…he put him in prison….Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him….And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him….And the angel said unto him, “Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals…and follow me.”… And…he came to the house of Mary the mother of John…where many were gathered together praying….Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.” Acts 12: 1-5, 7-8, 12, 16

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    Peter was in prison and the church was praying. They had no other recourse. They couldn’t petition the government to release him. They had no political influence, no money to bribe Herod. But they could pray. The world might have laughed, but friend, the devil didn’t laugh.

    Someone wisely said, “The devil trembles when he sees the weakest saint upon his knees.”  They offered focused prayer to God, and God controls the universe.

    Notice that “Prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him” (v. 5). They prayed for Peter not only with intensity but with specificity.

    What did you pray for this morning? Many of our prayers, like “Lord, save the lost,” are so vague, if God were to answer them we wouldn’t know it, and if God didn’t answer them we wouldn’t have to admit it.

    ACTION POINT:
    Stop praying vague, general prayers. Get specific. When they prayed for Peter and the answer came, they knew it was an answer to prayer.

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.”

  • Prayer Wrestling!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, for the love of the Spirit, that you strive together with me in your prayers to God for me.” Romans 15:30

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    One of the things I’m trying to cure myself of is casual prayer, prayer that is not intense, prayer that costs little.

    Do you know the Bible calls prayer “wrestling”? Paul said, “…that you strive together with me in your prayers to God for me.”

    Have you ever thought of prayer as striving, as wrestling? If you really get into intercession, you’re going to find out that the devil will fight you and oppose you. Prayer is work. I’d rather preach for an hour than to pray for a half an hour, so far as the labor that it takes for genuine prayer.

    ACTION POINT:
    Ask yourself: How much genuine agonizing do I do in prayer?

ZACH NICHOLSON – A LETTER TO THE SKEPTIC

May 17, 2015

==================================================

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.”

  • God Has a Plan for Your Life!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “…let us run with patience the race that is set before us.”Hebrews 12:1

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    God has a plan for my life, and God has a plan for your life. Do you know God’s plan for your life? I don’t care whether you’re nine or ninety, man or woman, rich or poor, God has a plan for your life! God has a race He wants you to run! And the Bible says you’re to run the race that is set before you.

    ACTION POINT:
    Have you ever taken time to get alone with God and make your life a sheet of blank paper, sign your name at the bottom, and say, “God, You fill it in. Whatever Your will is, I’ll do it”? The will of God—nothing more, nothing less, nothing else, nothing but!

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.

  • Good and Best!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “… let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.” Hebrews 12:1

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    There’s a certain discipline that belongs to the child of God. He does not have time to participate in good things because there are too many best things.

    People sometimes ask me, “Oh, have you read thus and such a book? It’s so good.” I say, “No, I haven’t.” And I think, “Where on earth did you ever get time to read that? I haven’t even read the best books yet. How am I going to have time to read good books?”

    ACTION POINT:
    I’m amazed at how many people spend so much time doing good things. But good things are bad things when they keep you from best things. Life would be simple if it were a choice between good and bad. But it’s a choice between good and best.

ZACH NICHOLSON – A LETTER TO THE SKEPTIC

May 17, 2015

==================================================

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.”

  • Under the Circumstances!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.” Matthew 14:30

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    I ask some Christians, “How are you doing?” They say, “Well, I’m doing pretty well under the circumstances.” I want to say, “How did you ever get there?”

    If you look at circumstances, you’re going to fall. Remember when Peter was there in the boat, and Jesus came walking on the water. Jesus said, “Come.” Peter got out of the boat and started to walk on water through those boisterous waves! And I can imagine Peter said, “This is wonderful!”

    Then an unkind wave slapped him in the face. He looked around at those waves and said, “This is impossible,” and he started to sink. He simply failed to look unto Jesus. He looked at circumstances.

    ACTION POINT:
    Today, come what may, keep your eyes focused upon Jesus. Even the wind and the waves must bow to His command.

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.

  • My Eyes Were On You!

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    “Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    There once was a king captured by the Roman army. They took the king with his family to stand before the Roman general to receive the sentence of death. The king fell on his face before the general and said, “You may do with me what you will, but spare my wife and children!” The Roman general was so moved by the plea that he released them all.

    Later, the king asked his wife about some of the things they had seen while in the Roman general’s chamber. She said, “I didn’t see anything. My eyes were only on the man who was willing to die for me.”

    ACTION POINT:
    “Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face. And the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.” May we be able to say, “My eyes are on the One who died for me, Jesus Christ. And I have eyes for no one but Him!”

ZACH NICHOLSON – A LETTER TO THE SKEPTIC

May 17, 2015

==================================================

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.

    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.
