Don’t Waste Your Life – John Piper Sermon

Don’t Waste Your Life may be John Piper’s most famous sermon.  Watch it below:

Your life is in God’s hands.  He has a right to take it and give it whenever He pleases.  (Deut 32:39).  The Lord gives and takes and never does anyone wrong because we are His.  The only way to not waste a life is to know what He would have you be.  Piper’s three points to answer this are:

  1. Life and death are given to you in order that you might use them to display the supreme worth of Jesus
  2. We must cultivate a supreme valuing and treasuring of Jesus above all things
  3. Treasuring Jesus is most clearly seen by what you’re willing to gladly risk and sacrifice for the surpassing value of more of Jesus
