Every once in awhile I will run across a sermon or series of sermons that will change or alter my viewpoint. I had a series from James MacDonald on the Will of God that radically changed my view on determining God's will for my life. Those messages brought me such relief. Recently I listened to a series from Andy Stanley titled, Faith, Hope and Luck that brought a deeper understanding of what exactly Faith is.
The last few days I have been listening to two messages from John Piper about Suffering. I downloaded them from the Desiring God site so that I could listen to them on my Walkman phone. They have been so influential to my thinking that I have felt prompted to post links to them on my blog so that others could listen to them as well. Here is a link to the sermons on the Desiring God site.
Lo and behold, I found them on YouTube. So, I am going to post them directly to this blog so that you won't have to go anywhere else to listen. I would like to encourage you to take the time to listen. I know that I have seen others post things to listen to on their blogs, but I admit that many times I just don't take the time.
Please consider bookmarking these videos, and when you get the chance give them a listen. I promise that you won't regret it. You could also go to the download page and snag the mp3's to listen to later. They are still free.
If you do take the time to listen to them, please, please let me know what you think! I would love to hear from all of you your thoughts on these sermons.
Without any further ado, here are the messages:
