Why the Great Commission Is Great

The Gospel Coalition National Conference 2013


In this 57-minute session, David Platt, president of the International Mission Board, founder of Radical.net, and author of Radical and Follow Me, digs into 2 Corinthians 4 to look at the work of proclaiming the gospel of Jesus. Rather than hoard our Christianity to ourselves, David challenges us to take it to the world around us.

If we truly believe the truth of Jesus’ Resurrection and the promise of eternal life that He offers, then we must take the message to the people around us. As we go about our daily lives, we must decide to lay aside our comfortable plans and nice ideas. Instead, we need to radically pursue the progress of the gospel among those who least want to hear it. Because they are the ones who most need to hear it.
