Jesus: The True Unwasted Life

Don't waste your life. For God's sake, take great care to make this little vapor's breath count for eternity.

And never forget that in the history of the world, there has been only one perfectly unwasted life — that of Jesus of Nazareth. And it is only through being connected to him by faith that we can take baby steps in truly making ours count.

In this 5-minute video, John Piper and Bob Glenn discuss the importance of drawing attention to Jesus's unwasted life when challenging ourselves not to waste ours.

For more on the unwasted life, see John Piper's book Don't Waste Your Life.
