“Real success is found in radical sacrifice. Ultimate satisfaction is found not in making much of ourselves but in making much of God. The purpose of our lives transcends the country and culture in which we live. Meaning is found in community, not individualism; joy is found in generosity, not in materialism, and truth is found in Christ, not universalism. Ultimately, Jesus is a reward worth risking everything to know, experience and enjoy.” David Platt Radical pg. 183
In living out a “radical experiment” this semester, we have challenged our students:
- Consume as much of the Word as possible (read through the entire Bible)
- Pray for your campus (pray for the social circles… work, home, school)
- Sacrifice money and time for a specific purpose
- Spend your time in another context (community or service outside of Impact)
- Commit your life to multiplying community (be a disciple, disciple others)
If we intently committed ourselves to these things, how would the culture and community around us be effected? Would we find God at work in our lives and in the lives of those around us much more than we thought or imagined?
