Overcoming Temptation

Recently Don Carson discussed the Christian's personal holiness in an interview with David Mathis. In this short clip he gives his thoughts on how we battle sin and overcome temptation. Worth a watch to spur us on in the daily fight against the world, the flesh and the devil.

Interview with J. I. Packer

Recently Carl Trueman interviewed J.I. Packer. Packer gives a great testimony to God's grace in his own life, his reflections on the Puritans and on Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and gives advice to young ministers. Well worth a watch.

Tuesday Teaching| "You Will Be Eaten By Cannibals!"

This week we're going to look at a little bit of church history, before we start a new series next week.

The following is a talk by John Piper on the life of John G. Paton, a missionary who gave his life to serving the cannibal filled islands of the New Hebrides. His life is marked by a remarkable boldness, a boldness that comes from having deeply grasped the truths of the gospel.

The Marriage of Ian and Larissa

John Piper:
Being satisfied in God (or anything) always seems easier when all is going well. But when things you love are being stripped out of your hands, then the test is real. If God remains precious in those moments, then his supreme worth shines more brightly. He is most glorified.
The most meaningful testimonies I receive are when people tell me that it was a vision of the sovereignty and goodness of God that got them through the most difficult times of their life.
Here is one of those testimonies. I tremble with the glad responsibility of introducing you to Ian & Larissa Murphy in this video. Tremble, because it is their story and so personal. So delicate. So easily abused. So unfinished. Glad, because Christ is exalted over all things.
