David Platt was fresh off a trek through some of the highest mountains and remotest villages in the world. While there, he saw firsthand some of the most urgent physical and spiritual needs imaginable. Pastor David was shocked by the needs he encountered, an experience that last a lasting impression on him that changed the course of his life.
We can get so complacent in our everyday lives that we forget to focus on the needs of other’s. I felt the same way the pastor did when I spent two weeks in Africa this past June. I have seen true poverty, children with no future.
The sheer number of people who do not know Jesus is staggering. Everyone needs Jesus and His will for our lives is always bring the gospel to those who have not yet heard it whether in another country or in our neighborhood.
“Something Needs to Change” answer’s the question “What is God’s Will for my life.” An emotional plea to Christians to move toward the tragedies and brokenness of our world with compassion, love, and mercy that can only come from our hope in Christ
“Because you and I need to remember that our homes and our health and our bank accounts and our vehicles and our jobs and our comforts in this life guarantee us nothing in this world. One day ( and it could be today) they’re all going to be gone, so we need to remind ourselves to live today for what lasts forever.”
I highly recommend this book for those who really want to be challenged, to think other’s and spur believers to get to work helping the world meet physical needs, but more importantly, spiritual needs.
I received a copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for an honest opinion.
