It hurts my heart that so many American churches look nothing like Jesus.
Jesus did not come so that we may have stuff. He came that we may have abundant life. Sometimes the thing keeping us from abundant life the most is all our stuff.
Below is an excerpt from a message by John Piper that someone created a video for.
It is powerful, it is offensive, and it is the truth.
A lot of what is being passed off these days as “the gospel” is idolatry.
There’s no insult like the truth.
“God is most glorified in you when you are most satisfied in Him in the midst of loss, not prosperity.” – John Piper
