No Christian Suffering Is Meaningless

No Christian Suffering Is Meaningless

Everyone in the world wants this. Every person on the planet aches for real hope — to find the secret of real strength and joy and significance.

Put another way, no one longs to lose heart. No one desires to be discouraged. No one wants the breath knocked out of their hope. And the apostle Paul claims to have found the key.

In this new exposition of 2 Corinthians 4:16–18, delivered Friday at the Legacy Conference in Chicago, John Piper digs beneath the apostle’s amazing claim, “We do not lose heart.” He shows what world-altering hope is offered to the Christian in looking to the unseen and eternal, and finding that none of our pain — none of it — is meaningless in Jesus.

Listen to the audio, or read the manuscript, of “Do Not Lose Heart.”
