What does it mean to be “radical” in everyday life? Is it possible to live a radical life for Jesus in the middle of daily chores, sports, parenting, school, etc…? Pastors, do you ever feel the weight of being someone you are not (in an age of celebrity pastors)? “Radical” is living everyday, mundane life with gospel intentionality. With that said, I found this podcast very interesting. Give it a listen! You will find the LINK below. (Trust me, you will be ENCOURAGED!!)
Join Michael Horton on Steve Brown, Etc. for a freeing discussion of his new book, Ordinary: Sustainable Faith in a Radical, Restless World. You just may find that God has called you to be exactly where you already are.
Michael Horton is host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The White Horse Inn. He’s also the author of more than 20 books and a professor at Westminster Seminary California.
Here is the LINK.
My Bible study has been going through the study guide of David Platt’s “Follow Me” and it’s been pretty discouraging week after week to be told that if I’m not going/loving/serving/sharing perfectly, I should question if I’m even a disciple. I just finished One Way Love. It was great!
(Was quoting it at my Bible study: “What are you going to do now that you don’t have to do anything?”) Thanks for the recommendation:)
I really enjoyed the link you posted here. Again, so refreshing!
I’m sensing a shift in the church toward reacquainting ourselves with grace, and it’s exciting!
Came across this piece recently on preaching moral verses redemptive messages. Maybe you’ll appreciate it as I did:
Thanks again for the share!
“Grace is that which says the only people who get any better are people who know if they never get any better that Jesus will love them anyway.”

I always enjoy reading your responses! I like Platt and certainly have read and quoted from him before. But we do need to help people to see what it looks like to live out their faith in everyday life…not just when we go overseas or when we are involved in some large scale program/project. If not, then we divorce everyday life from following Christ, which, sadly, is rather common. What difference does the gospel make in the daily grind, around the dinner table, in the workplace?
God bless you and the “everyday” work you are doing for his kingdom! Will pray for you today.
