Much is at stake in our fight against unbelief. In this lab, John Piper reminds us that without love, holiness, and sin-killing, no one will see the kingdom of God.
Some questions to ask as you read and study:
- What is unbelief? Are there different kinds? What is at stake?
- Watch the lab. What are the three essential elements for eternal life? How does unbelief hinder these pursuits?
- What are some warning signs in your life that unbelief is beginning to take root? How can you fight them with specific promises from God’s word?
Principles for Bible Reading
Plan to Do, Not Just Hear
As you read the word, remember the commandment of Jesus, reiterated by James, to be doers and not merely hearers of the word (Matthew 7:24–27; James 1:22–25).
Seldom does anyone wander into obedience. Often, we must take time to not only digest what we have read, but to plan for how we can practically obey God’s will.
