    Descriptive info: /.. Desiring God Blog.. : Posts on Recommendations.. Subscribe to.. All Blog Posts.. This Category.. Jesus and Cerebal Palsy.. Stefan Green.. November 7, 2013.. Jesus means everything to me.. My life is worship.. Often we Christians throw around phrases like these, once full of meaning, but now uttered with too much flippancy and routine.. But Rodger Frournoy, Jr.. talks like this because he means it with all of his body and soul.. When I hear Rodger talk about what it’s like to live with cerebral palsy, and what Jesus means to him in the midst of his disability, I am brought to worship.. It’s a wonderful thing for the church to tell stories like these.. May God strengthen your faith as you.. meet Rodger.. Rodger’s story is produced by the.. Austin Stone Story Team.. and featured at the Storyframes Collective — a collaborative effort between The Gospel Coal.. ….. 20 Quotes from Walking with God through Pain and Suffering.. September 30, 2013.. Tim Keller has written one of the year’s most important books (a line I seem to recite annually).. His newest —.. Walking with God through Pain and Suffering.. — is a wise, Christ-centered, comforting book for readers who hurt, and offers counsel to readers who anticipate future suffering.. It’s a book for everyone, and it releases tomorrow from Dutton.. To mark its arrival, I pulled my favorite quotes from the book and narrowed the list down to my top 20.. “No matter what precautions we take, no matter how well we have put together a good life, no matter how hard we have worked to be healthy, wealthy, comfortable with friends and family, and successful with our career — something will inevitably ….. A Sweet Legacy I Savor—Bible Memory.. March 9, 2013.. As I look back over 32 years of pastoral ministry at Bethlehem one of the sweet legacies I savor is the solid place Bible memorization has in the church.. I am not the only, or even the main reason for this.. David and Sally Michael hold that place under God’s good providence.. But I have loved it, nurtured it, and tried to model it.. Because I believe in it with all my heart.. At the core of this commitment is what we call the Fighter Verse program.. This is a church-wide encouragement for young and old to memorize together each week a portion of Scripture.. The verses are planned out for five years.. Then we start over.. They’re called “fighter verses” because the one offensive weapon in our spi….. The Splendor of Holiness: Upcoming Children’s Conference.. February 22, 2013.. We know from Romans 6 that from the early days of the church there has existed a temptation to distort this gospel of God’s grace by deemphasizing God’s holiness.. Which is tragic.. It’s precisely God’s holiness that makes his grace toward us sinners so amazing! Understanding the doctrine of God’s holiness is absolutely essential if we are to rightly understand the doctrine of God’s grace and.. the miracle of sanctification.. This is what the..

It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin.. –Luke 17:2.. It may long be remembered as the night Sinclair Ferguson went rogue.. The date was June 28, 2009.. During the congregational singing, he felt an unusually strong impression to preach something altogether different — both text and topic — from the manuscript he was holding in his hand for the exposition he had prepared on Romans 6:6–14.. Here’s how he explained himself on the fly in abandoning the announced topic:.. There are rare occasions when during the course of a service there is such an impression made upon one’s spiri..

    Descriptive info: : Posts on Conferences.. When the Vine Really Became Precious.. November 4, 2013.. I am the vine; you are the branches.. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.. (John 15:5).. It was a July morning in Manila in 1985 when union with Jesus really became precious to me.. I know right where I was sitting having devotions in the courtyard of the YWAM outpost.. I was a twenty-year-old struggling to understand how Christ’s work and mine worked together.. What really made me acceptable to God? Something taught in the Discipleship Training School class I was taking that week had confused me, and I had been praying earnestly about it.. In my devotions, I had been slowly making my way through John’s Gospel, and chapter 15 wa….. The Remarkable Reality of Union with Christ.. October 16, 2013.. It may be the most important doctrine you’ve never heard of.. So says Kevin DeYoung about the reality of “union with Christ” — and sadly it seems he’s right.. But hopefully you aren’t among that number — and have not just heard about the doctrine, but begun to taste the practical fruit of this wide and wonderful reality.. As Sinclair Ferguson says about union with Christ, “Of all the doctrines surrounding the Christian life this, one of the profoundest, is also one of the most practical in its effects.. ”.. Even though union with Christ too often has been under-emphasized, more and more pastors and laymen are talking in recent years about union with Christ.. And we want to add kindling to that fi….. 15 Quotes from the C.. S.. Lewis Conference.. October 9, 2013.. As we finish uploading all the audio and video of the C..

Would Lewis’s imposing logic have made it difficult? Perhaps Lewis was too welcoming to figures outside the bounds of orthodoxy?..

Tim Keller and John Piper Talk C.. (video).. Introducing the C.. Lewis “Small Talks”.. July 23, 2013.. Lewis has been called the “Romantic Rationalist” because he brings together two seemingly opposite things.. He is both rationally sharp and imaginatively brilliant, which is a rare combination.. In this five-minute video, Tim Keller and John Piper talk about some remarkable juxtapositions in Lewis and his influence on their lives.. Lewis is available if you register by July 26..

And now, in addition to four Friday afternoon seminars, we’re introducing a dozen 10-minute mini-talks inspired by Lewis’s life and work.. We’re calling these “small talks,” well, because they’re small compared to the 60-minute plenaries and 45-minute seminars.. We’re asking our small-talkers to sound off for just 10 minutes or less, and w….. Are We Fascinated with Lewis’s Fame or His Influence?.. July 10, 2013.. The video below introduces the amazingly influential C.. Lewis and invites you to our National Conference on Lewis, September 27–29.. If your time is short, just go straight to the video.. But if you wonder why we should even care about Lewis’s influence, you might want to read these few paragraphs.. Lewis’s profound influence on so many people was not owing to his aberrations from evangelical doctrine.. Aberrations there were.. But that was not the spring of his influence.. It was in spite of that.. So the quest to understand the depth and extent of his influence promises riches even for those of us who prize the doctrines where he was weakest..

As many of you may know, the Pipers have left Minneapolis for a year to make space for the new leadership at Bethlehem.. They are now settled in Tennessee, renting the home of an extended family member for the months ahead.. For the first time, John is on staff full time at Desiring God, and he has plenty of travel and writing to fill his calendar as he works remotely for this season.. So what will John be doing? Here’s a short portion of an update and invitation he sent last week to some of o….. Recap of Recent Piper Messages.. May 17, 2013.. We have never known days like these at Desiring God.. John Piper is now on staff full-time at DG and has begun a more unfettered ministry to the wider world through writing and speaking.. Along the way, we want to make it easy for you to see what he’s up to and hear what he’s been saying lately.. Here’s a rich baker’s dozen of new messages from Pastor John so far in 2013.. “Joy As the Power to Suffer in the Path of Love for the Sake of Liberation”.. Passion Conference | Atlanta, GA.. The year began with a bang, as John addressed more than 60,000 college students in the Georgia Dome on how our joy in God frees us to suffer the sake of others’ freedom.. “Sailing to the Nations to Finish th.. Recommissioned and Ready to Launch.. April 15, 2013.. For 33 years Bethlehem put bread on our table.. They paid our salary.. They didn’t muzzle this ox while he was treading out the grain (1 Timothy 5:18).. They were the hands of God in meeting our needs.. I am profoundly thankful.. It was a sweet and powerful farewell last night — and included a special recommissioning from the elders for a final chapter of ministry beyond Bethlehem.. Now I’m treading out the grain at Desiring God.. The muzzle is still off.. I get my first DG paycheck today.. My title in this new role is Founder and Teacher..

June 18, 2012.. In January 1999, Desiring God was four years old and in a growth spurt.. Our office was partly in two old Sunday School rooms and partly on the balcony of Bethlehem Baptist Church's vacated (and now demolished) old sanctuary.. We had eight staff members, growing demands, and new dreams.. But we needed someone with serious organizational horsepower to help us before things got out of hand.. And the Lord sent Bill Walsh.. Bill joined the DG team at the beginning of February of that year as our Production and Distribution Manager.. Mainly it meant he made things run.. And he did it really well.. As DG grew, so did his job.. Pretty soon he was Director of Operations.. But by 2006, the Lord h….. Reaching the World Through the Web.. May 1, 2012.. Update 5/4:..

    Descriptive info: : Posts on Outside Events.. Piper at Passion Tonight.. January 3, 2013.. Atlanta, Ga.. – From the opening note, Passion 2013 has been another brilliant illustration of how big our God is, and that he is capable of capturing a generation of young people who know, love, and live for Jesus.. Louie Giglio and the Passion team continue to grow and refine a movement that engages students with a big vision of God, and then aims to set their lives on a trajectory of mission, sacrifice, and service for the advance of the gospel.. It’s impossible to adequately describe the experience of standing together in one room with 60,000 college students worshipping through strong, God-centered music, and then sitting with them to receive God's word and his commission to make him ….. Pray for Passion 2013.. January 1, 2013.. The Georgia Dome in downtown Atlanta was rocking for last night’s major college bowl game that came down to the last snap, but anticipations are that it will be even louder the next three nights — with praise for Jesus.. Well over 50,000 college students ascend on the Dome today as Passion 2013 begins this evening and goes through Friday morning.. While Clemson’s game-winning field goal, with no time left on the clock, signaled the night’s end for players and fans, it was just the beginning for a small army of staff and volunteers who traded sleep to turn a football stadium into a massive worship gathering for a large army to celebrate the beauty and grace and supremacy of Jesus.. The first….. The Lineup Card for T4G.. April 10, 2012..

But, come on, it’s Opening Week in Major League Baseball, and there are.. nine.. speakers giving.. plenary addresses.. Nine.. Nine innings.. Nine men on the field.. The list of nine speakers is almost a lineup card, is it not?.. Which got some of us at the DG offices thinking.. , Forget the conference, if this were a baseball lineup card, would it make sense to bat the players in this order? And what positions would they play in the field?.. So, first, here’s the order for this week, and second, some of our commentary on the line….. The Power of the Gospel and Marriage..

Three key points Col highlighted from the text came under the headings 1) word, 2) prayer, and 3) parenting..

For session three yesterday of the.. (the second half of which is today), the pastors split into three groups to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of their current ministry.. I sat in on one group and listened to the discussion.. As one pastor would stand, introduce himself, and report from the frontlines, all of the pastors responded with resonating nods.. Although these pastors are speaking as workers in different contexts, their shared vocation creates a warm camaraderie.. As the three groups of pastors came back together, Col picked up the teaching by introducing some trellises for disciple making.. On the foundation of Sunday gatherings and the public ministry o….. Key Questions for Growing the Vine.. November 2, 2010.. Col began the second session of today’s workshop with a story of a young cricket player who embraced the gospel after two years of intentional ministry of the Word.. In summary, Col said that the careful, personal proclamation of the gospel, alongside the public, is being used by God to call people to himself.. Why Do We Do Small Groups?.. The session then moved into the subject of small group ministry within the local church.. The pace of the sessions are helpful, weaving the teaching by Col and Tony with focused discussion by the pastors gathered.. The first question posed to elicit discussion was simply, “Why do we have small groups?”.. The 100 pastors huddled into groups of two or three an….. The Biblical Vision of Christian Ministry.. We're at Bethlehem's North Campus for the first of a 2-day Trellis the Vine workshop with Col Marshall and Tony Payne (authors of.. the book by the same title.. ).. We found out at the beginning of this morning's session that there are attendees here from not only the 5-state region (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas) but also as far as New Hampshire, south Texas, and Oregon.. Tony Payne led us through the first session on the biblical vision of Christian ministry.. God's Agenda for the World: The Gospel.. Payne began by asking, "What is God's agenda in the world?"

    Descriptive info: : Posts on Commentary.. Church, Make Room for Young Leaders.. What some aging Christians need from the younger generation is.. an invitation to lean into the local church.. , and not retreat or retire.. But others from the older generation need a different challenge — a summons to lay aside suspicion of everyone young enough to be your child, a charge to dispose of a derogatory view of the real-live specimen of the next generation.. And, in particular, some older leaders need to hear a plea not to get off the bus, but to aggressively make room for young leaders at the front.. Do Not Despise the Young.. It was a two-part charge the aging apostle gave to his younger-generation protégé in 1 Timothy 4:12: “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believ….. The Kind of Father He Is.. November 9, 2013.. The castle was mangled.. With just a glance, you could tell it was bad.. The main gate was completely exposed.. The chains that once lowered the intimidating drawbridge were now severed.. The drum tower, which had weathered the most obvious destruction, had its battlements crushed — so crushed that you could almost recreate in your head the sound it must have made the moment the blow came..

All Christians suffer.. Either you have, you are, or you will — “through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God” (Acts 14:22).. This reality is a stark reminder that we have not reached the new heavens and new earth.. The new Jerusalem of no tears and no pain, of no mourning and no death, hasn’t arrived yet (Revelation 21:1, 4).. But just because we experience suffering as we await the redemption of our bodies, it doesn’t mean that our suffering is random or without purpose.. And neither does it mean that Scripture doesn’t tell us how to think about our suffering now.. Here are five important biblical truths about suffering every Christian should have ready:..
