A huge H/T to dear sister Carla, who toils steadfastly on behalf of the Yahweh Center Children’s Village, for the following excellent, short (ten-minute) montage of a sermon by John Piper, the title of which is self-explanatory, Biblical and refreshing to those seeking Christ:
I found it doubly exciting because, I just learned this week, brother Piper will be preaching at out newish (and still quite small, 100-ish +/- attending) church, Redeemer Fellowship, here in the desert-like gospel mission field of Boston, on October 21st!!! (I had to resist the temptation to use seven exclamation marks.)
Seeing the huge auditorium which he addresses in the video, I’m humbled that he would take the time to preach to our tiny band, impressed at what that says about Pastor Piper’s walking-the-walk humility and commitment. Please pray that the Lord do a mighty work through this event and spread the word. Please also consider coming to join us that day. I’d love to meet at least a few of you.
No, there’s no ‘catch’ or fee other than laying down your entire life….
If the message is convicting/attractive you’re probably already in the process of doing that already though… Everyone else will likely be offended if they take his words seriously. You mean it’s not a cake-walk? You mean Christianity and Americanism — pick your flavor — are not one and the same? Uh, no…
