*David Platt is the new president of the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. In his popular book, Radical, “he urges Christians to join the Radical Experiment – a one-year journey in authentic discipleship that will transform how you live in a world that desperately needs the Good News Jesus came to bring”.*
I challenge you to have a Radical Thanksgiving. Read the scripture below to see how devoted the disciples were to the study of God’s word, breaking of bread and prayer. As you spend time breaking bread with your family over Thanksgiving, why not add Bible study and prayer to this time of fellowship? Perhaps we would see the Lord adding to the church daily, if we would replicate the same devotion as the disciples.
“And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved” Acts 2:42-47 (KJV).
I hope you have a Radical Thanksgiving!
