Publisher's Description

What Do You Revolve Around?

All the planets of your life—from your labor and leisure to your thinking and feeling—are held in orbit by the greatness, gravity, and blazing brightness of Jesus Christ at the center of your life. When He ceases to be the center, the planets of your life fly into confusion, sending a hundred things out of control. Pastor John Piper’s powerful teaching is recorded during an intimate retreat for youth leaders and students onto three The Blazing Center DVDs. With the study guide, this is an ideal package for adult and youth Sunday school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, and families. Discover surprising insights about the reality of sin, how your love for God is really revealed, and how only joy in Him will sustain you through times of suffering.

God Is the Blazing Sun

at the Center of Reality

Everything revolves around Him. And as the most valuable and glorious person who exists, God is loving, not conceited, when he calls us to worship Him. His pursuit of glory and our pursuit of joy are not at odds—because God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.

In these eight 30-minute sessions on three DVDs, John Piper explains from the Bible:

-Why God is so passionate about His glory

-Why our happiness depends on God’s pursuit of His glory

-That God actually commands us to pursue our happiness

-That sin is when we abandon God and pursue our happiness in lesser things

-How our love for God is revealed by our delight in Him, not our labors for Him

-How joy in God overflows in love to meet the needs of others

-How only joy in God can sustain us in times of profound suffering

Recorded in the intimate setting of a retreat for youth leaders and students, these sessions are ideal for use in adult and youth Sunday school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, and families. To get the most from this resource, use it along with The Blazing Center Study Guide.

Includes subtitles in English or Spanish!

Story Behind the Book

"The greatest news in all the world is that there is no final conflict between my passion for joy and God’s passion for His glory. The knot that ties these together is the truth that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. Jesus Christ died and rose again to forgive the treason of our souls, which have turned from savoring God to savoring self. In the cross of Christ, God rescues us from the house of mirrors and leads us out to the mountains and canyons of His majesty. Nothing satisfies us—or magnifies Him—more."
—John Piper

    Finding Your Satisfaction in God

    I used this DVD series with a group of young men. The messages were thoughtful and practical and generated much discussion after each session. The topic, finding your satisfaction in God, was refreshing and exciting! Knowing Christ should be exciting and pursuing Him should not be regulated by duty driven obedience. Obedience from the heart comes out from what we treasure. This series brings us to the realization that we can only truly find eternal happiness when we are treasuring our relationship with Christ above all things and finding our happiness in God.

    I used this dvd series for my study group. We were looking at exploring the Glory of God, how we view God and what relationship we have with Him. Although the dvd has a teenage audience, it was applicable to all ages.

    Piper is just clear and challenging. Met my expectations.

    This was an excellent study for my wife and I to go through after resigning from formal ministry. This re-focused us and reminded us that "God is glorified not only by His glory's being seen, but by its being rejoiced in. When those that see it delight in it, God is more glorified than if they only see it.... He that testifies his idea of God's glory [does not] glorify God so much as he testifies also his approbation of it and his delight in it." Jonathan Edwards

    I am thoroughly enjoying going through these sessions each week as part of our prayer group. It has been a tremendous blessing to hear such God centered and God exalting teaching. It has helped me in understanding the profound truth that I am to pursue pleasure and delight... in God, what John Piper calls "Christian Hedonism". :) The soul satisfying supremacy of Christ in all things, for the joy of all people. I would highly recommend this set to those that lead a "small-group", or even simply for yourself.

    Our men's small group is almost completed this outstanding series with John Piper. We have found it very stimulating even at 7:00AM when we meet. We love John's "in your face" passion on this life-changing topic. Would recommend highly for all age groups. This DVD would make an ideal Christmas gift and is very reasonably priced.
