Risk is Right by John Piper

I shared the following quote as a part of the sermon on March 16.

John Piper “This is what we live for, and die for: to make much of Jesus Christ and his glorious, universe-encompassing kingdom. The heart cry of our lives, young and old, men and women, rich and poor, is the glory of Jesus Christ so that with full courage now as always Christ might be honored in our bodies, whether by life or by death.” pp. 14-15 Risk is Right

Risk is Right is a small book that is an expanded version of chapter 5 from Don’t Waste Your Life. Both books are on my “must” and “I dare you to” read lists.

If you will use this link to Desiring God books, you can download a pdf version of either one of the books for free. You will also notice the vast collection of books written by John Piper.

I dare you!

The Lord is a Warrior, pt 2…quotes

The following quotes are from the sermon The Lord is a Warrior, pt. 2 preached on Sunday, March 9, 2014.

From “The Lord is a Warrior” by Matt Papa (rap portion)

“Today is the day He’s welcoming the foreigner

Repent and believe that He hung upon the cross for ya

Otherwise you will meet Him as a holy righteous slaughterer

Somebody call the coroner the LORD is a Warrior!”

Listen to the song here…The Lord is a Warrior by Matt Papa

The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien quote p. 820

“For morning came, morning and a wind from the sea; and darkness was removed, and the hosts of Mordor wailed, and terror took them, and they fled, and died, and the hoofs of wrath rode over them.  And then all the host of Rohan burst into song, and they sang as they slew, for the joy of the battle was on them, and the sound of their singing that was fair and terrible came even to the city.”
