John Piper—Holding Fast to the Word

I consider John Piper the best teacher of this generation.  I have been reading his books and listening to his sermons for years, and it has always been richly rewarding.  John has opened up to my understanding many verses with soaring enthusiasm and unmatched clarity.  I can’t tell you how many times one of His sermons has given me sorely needed encouragement in the midst of affliction.  All of his sermons are available at his Desiring God websight without cost.  What a blessing!  A recent sermon is a stirring exhortation to hold fast to God’s word.  John starts by taking the first fifteen minutes to dramatically recite the entire book of Philippians by memory.  This is a great example for all of us to follow.  The balance of the sermon is a powerful plea to hold on to the word of life.  It doesn’t get any better than this!  The sermon is available at:
