John Piper – Let Them See the Highest, Best, and Final Good

27 Feb

The highest, best, and final good in the good news is God Himself. When you believe the gospel, you taste and see that the Lord himself is good and that the best gift He has purchased for you in the death of His Son is the enjoyment of God Himself.

Brothers, I think our people need to hear this constantly. In this fallen world, the tide is always going out. That is, the affections our people have for God Himself (as distinct from His gifts) are continually prone to shrink. Our job is to tilt the world, by the power of the Spirit and the Word, so that the tide rolls in again.

John Piper – Preaching and Living Justification by Faith Alone

22 Feb

Preaching and living justification by faith alone glorifies Christ, rescues hopeless sinners, emboldens imperfect saints, and strengthens fragile churches. It is a stunning truth–that God justifies the ungodly by faith. “To the one who does not work but trusts him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness” (Rom. 4:5). History bears witness: the preaching of this truth creates, reforms, and revives the church.
