As those who belong to a sovereign God who is perfectly just and merciful, we too should seek to extend justice and mercy to others. In this sermon from Psalm 82, David Platt urges us to pray in light of the injustice around us and to make certain that we address the world’s greatest need––its spiritual need––by sharing the gospel. The realities of abortion, racism, and the persecution of Christians around the world should drive us to plead for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
David Platt serves as pastor at McLean Bible Church in Washington, D.C. He is the founder and president of Radical. He is the author of several books, including Radical, Radical Together, Follow Me, and Counter Culture.
