I have been gripped. I had heard the name David Platt a few times over the past few weeks. And I’m a bit of a sermon snob. I like a select few in the speaking world and really do not find myself with much desire to add to my limited list.
So I watched a little series David Platt did at the SBC. It was good. It was quite good. So I downloaded a few podcasts. They are even better.
Now lest you think I am taken by a quick wit and interesting sermon- I must give a disclaimer. Platt is only occasionally funny. But Platt is always about the gospel.
Perhaps you are like me, and there are times when you wrestle with “the gift of singleness”. Sometimes it is the gift that we didn’t put on our wish list. But when David Platt talks about it, it all becomes clear. When I am longing for heaven, my longing for all other things diminishes.

#130- The Gospel & Singleness
(Certainly not limited to singles! The truth of this message surpasses relationship status.)
Whom have I in heaven but you?
And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. – Psalm 73:25
I recently came across a blog called Stuff Christian Culture Likes. Please take it with a grain of salt. It is designed to poke fun at the Christian Culture and the things that we elevate to ridiculous levels.
As I sat in church this past week, a few came to mind:
– Christian’s like Apple. It is hip to talk smack about PCs and to promote the latest iGadget.
– Christian men like sandals. Perhaps it’s a throwback to Bible times. Sandals probably looked ok with long robes, but please sir, ditch the mandals with khakis at church.
Check out the Stuff Christian Culture Likes blog for a little humor about the things that Christian’s like but have nothing to do with being a follower of Jesus.
Will you understand that Christ is King? Or will you just like the words we sing after the music stops.
It’s a line from a song. But not just another Christian song. It’s a song from LeCrae.
Now I’ve heard of Lecrae on a couple of occasions and listened to his songs a few times. But something really hit me this time I looked up the Reach Records website. I was convicted when I listened to the music. And I liked it. Both.
Even if rap is not your style of choice, please take a moment to see what is happening over at Reach Records. It is music packed out with convicting lyrics, theology, and talent.

Is anyone else fascinated by VOSS water? I must admit that frugal me purchased VOSS water the other day because I wanted the bottle to refill.
My aunt thought I was drinking out a shampoo bottle. My brother thought I was drinking out of a perfume bottle. I think I am drinking out the most fashionable water bottle ever.
So far, it was $2.99 well spent.
