Publisher's Description




Overview

This five-session course is by John Piper, the pastor of preaching at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has written numerous books including, Desiring God, Don t Waste Your Life, and Let the Nations Be Glad. In this course he helps us to focus on who God is and what that means for our lives. Piper insists that with a proper view of the greatness of God, we will learn to trust him and find that he is our joy.


Session One



God Is an Important Person

We should not take God for granted.

Isaiah 48:9 11


Albert Einstein had little use for organized religion. Chares Misner had an idea of why: My guess is that he simply felt that the religions he had run into didn t have a proper respect for the author of the universe.

Session Two



God Is for Us and for Himself

God s chief end is to please himself, which means he is also for us.

Psalm 106:7 8; Isaiah 43:6 7; Jeremiah 13:11; Ezekiel 20:9; 2 Thessalonians 1:9 10


We exist to glorify God and enjoy him forever, but why does God exist? What should God worship? Or will we deny to him the highest of pleasures?

Session Three



God Is in Control

We are sorrowful, yet always rejoicing, because we know God is in charge.

2 Corinthians 6:10


What person who has lived long enough does not know that the sweetest joys, the deepest joys, are marked with tears, not laughter?

Session Four



God Is Our Avenger

We overcome the dangers of anger by allowing God to be our avenger.

Romans 12:19


Many people hide their anger by keeping up a good front. The trouble is that anger that is kept corked inside ferments. Everybody has to learn to deal with it one way or another.

Session Five



God Is Our Joy

When we find our joy in Christ, we can sacrifice for others.

Hebrews 10:32 39


How can we continue to want to love and sacrifice for each other? Only by allowing Christ to be our joy.
