Ok. First off, this is a trailer for a new book from David Platt called Follow Me. A book I haven’t read, yet. I’m sort of picky about recommending books, but this trailer raises some great questions, so I wanted to share it with you. I don’t know what all of the content of the book will be like, but the clip below offers a lot of promise. Also, if it’s anything like Platt’s Radical (which I have read and do recommend), it will be full of a lot of tough to hear truth with enormous implications for the church.
Are too many of us are counting on some act or prayer or rite of passage to rescue us from Tom & Jerry’s version of Hell, at the expense of actually, biblically following Jesus.
What does it really mean to be a disciple of Jesus?
When Jesus said “Follow me.” what was he really inviting people into?
Whether or not you get into Platt’s book, I pray you’ll dig in to God’s Word for answers to these questions. Make sure you’re really following Jesus the way the Bible describes it, and not just settling for a casual, cultural Christianity.
