Called to Be Lights in the World
Rejoicing in the Refiner’s Fire, Part 14
God did not have to save you, so why did he? John Piper begins this session with God’s purpose in saving anyone he chooses to save. He ends with a few words about serving and suffering in a broken and ungodly world. For instance, how can a persecuted Christian glorify God living under an ungodly government?
Look at the Book is John Piper’s latest effort to help teach people to read the Bible for themselves. It’s an ongoing series of 8–12 minute videos in which the camera is on the text, not the teacher.
As part of this initiative, Desiring God is putting on regional events focused on certain passages of Scripture. Below, you can find all the video from our Look at the Book weekend on 1 Peter 1–2. The clip above is Part 14: Called to Be Lights in the World.
