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
