Hunger for His Word

Look away from self and turn to Christ!

Posted by on Apr 27, 2010 in J.C. Ryle, Quotes | 0 comments

Look not to yourselves! You are by nature wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked; you cannot make atonement for your past transgressions, you cannot wipe out a single page in that long black list. And when the King shall ask you for your wedding garment you will be speechless. Look simply unto Jesus, and then the weight shall fall from off your shoulders, the course shall be clear and plain, and you shall run the race which is set before you.

Total Dependance on God’s Words

Posted by on Apr 22, 2010 in J.C. Ryle, Quotes | 0 comments

There must be a real heartfelt belief that God’s promises are sure and to be depended on – a real belief that what God says in the Bible is all true and that every doctrine contrary to this is false, whatever anyone may say. There must be a real belief that all God’s words are to be received, however hard and disagreeable to flesh and blood, and that His way is right and all others wrong. This there must be, or you will never come out from the world, take up the cross, follow Christ and be saved.

APJ: How should you boast only in Christ when job hunting?

Posted by on Apr 7, 2010 in John Piper, Videos | 0 comments

Also, from the comments of this video:

wheresmylife: From experience, I completely agree. I’ve even gone so far as to let the interviewer know that my faith in God comes first in my life. Then I let them know how that relates to that job. It means that I’m on time, give 100% and respect authority. It means I work with integrity, honesty and doing what I can to to make my boss’ job easier. God’s honored this. But you MUST live up to what you tell them. Don’t exaggerate. Remember, God is your Source, not any job. Not even money. God alone.

Next Week: Ask Pastor John Live

Posted by on Mar 24, 2010 in John Piper, News | 0 comments

A week from today we’ll be streaming our next live session of Ask Pastor John. If you aren’t familiar with the way we’ve been doing these recently, this is an event where John Piper hears and answers a variety of questions in front of a live viewing audience.

Where do the questions come from? They come from you! Anybody can submit a question, and the question can be about anything. Just make sure it’s less than 140 characters, though, since you have to send it through Twitter (and don’t forget to include the hashtag #apjwith it).

The event will run from 7:00pm to 8:30pm Central Time—primetime—March 31st on our live events webpage.

This could be a great opportunity to gather friends, family, roommates, or neighbors to ask and hear what God might have to say through Pastor John as he seeks to represent God’s word.
