Endure and Embrace Suffering – John Piper – Passion 2013

-

While I don’t endorse all of the speakers at Passion 2013, I do like me some John Piper (and Francis Chan). In his first speaking engagement since retiring from his senior pastor position at Bethlehem Baptist, John brought a great message last night at Passion 2013 from Hebrews 10, 11, and 12. He preached on a “pattern of power to embrace suffering in the path of love for the cause of liberation”. His three main points from the text for this pattern are:

  • Deep soul satisfaction in the promise of a Christ filled future
  • Freedom from self-protecting fear
  • Fruit of fearless love no matter the cost

Getting to the Bottom of Your Joy – John Piper

-

Adam Powers writes – “There is no better sermon which displays the complete God-centered, Christian-Hedonist, Christ-exalting, Bible-saturated thought of John Piper better than this sermon.  He not only describes the completeness of his thought, but also goes into what may be the mistakes in this thought as well. Very humble and powerful at the same time, and since Piper is such a massive figure in our time and thus the history of the Church, this sermon will be remembered for years to come.”

“This is the final message in the series called Spectacular Sins and Their Global Purpose in the Glory of Christ. The aim has been to show that over and over in the history of the world, the epoch-making sins that changed the course of history never nullified but only fulfilled the global purposes of God to glorify his Son and save his people.”
