Insights from the joy of having peace with God

Reading Together: Don’t Waste Your Life

Lately, our church has been discussing the topic of “living in the context of eternity.” This is not a concept that we have invented or crafted in order to market a sermon series. Rather, it is something that we have seen together as we study through the books of Joshua and Acts.

To build on this it is my desire to read a book together that builds on this concept. If life on this earth is just a tiny blip on the radar of eternity then what is it meant for? How should we live today so as to somehow impact tomorrow?

Will you read with me?

Don’t Waste Your Life was written by John Piper. It is a book focused on making our life on earth have eternal significance.

In it you will find great messages like this one:

“You don’t have to know a lot of things for your life to make a lasting difference in the world. But you do have to know the few great things that matter, perhaps just one, and then be willing to live for them and die for them. The people that make a durable difference in the world are not the people who have mastered many things, but who have been mastered by one great thing.”

Here is how we can do this:

  • Each week starting this coming Wednesday (11/18/2015) we will read two chapters.
  • On this site I will post my thoughts the following Monday on the reading.
  • In the “Comments” section we can all have discussion on what we have read.

I hope that you will join me!
