John Piper
Spiritual Growth Is Not Optional

John Piper
Why Would the World Ask About Your Hope?
Hope is not an add-on to Christian experience. It is part of the first things. The essential things. It is a vital component of saving faith, because part of what we believe relates to our future. It is impossible to be a Christian and keep on believing that your eternity will be bleak.
