Battling Unbelief: Defeating Sin with Superior Pleasureby Desiring God
Synopses & Reviews
When Faith Flickers, Stoke the Fire
No one sins out of duty. We sin because it offers some promise of happiness. That promise enslaves us-until we believe that God is more desirable than life itself (Psalm 63:3). Only the power of Gods superior promises in the gospel can emancipate our hearts from servitude to the shallow promises and fleeting pleasures of sin.
In this twelve-chapter study guide developed by Desiring God, you will find practical ways to sever the clinging roots of sin that ensnare us, including anxiety, pride, shame, impatience, covetousness, bitterness, despondency, and lust.
Delighting in the bounty of Gods glorious gospel promises will free us for a less sin-encumbered life, to the glory of Christ. Rooted in solid biblical reflection, this book aims to help guide you through the battles to the joys of victory by the power of the gospel and its superior pleasure.
Fight lies with the purifying power of God's truth. Solid teaching by popular pastor and bestselling author John Piper will illuminate the struggle so you can claim victory!
This multi-session DVD and the corresponding study guide can be used by an individual or in a group to apply the faith-grounding truths from the companion book.
