Future Grace: The Purifying Power of the Promises of God
Synopses & Reviews
Freedom from Sin through the Promises of God
In this DVD version of his foundational book Future Grace, John Piper reveals how the journey to freedom in the Christian life requires a deeper awareness of the expansive reach of God and his extraordinary grace. Victory over sin comes not from a herculean effort to avoid worldly pleasures, but through fixing one’s focus on the reality that God is far more desirable than even life itself. His grace is not only past, but future.
Used with the Future Grace companion DVD study guide, this video taps John Piper’s biblical understanding on how a life of purity can be recovered through the power of God's future grace--streaming into our present through faith. Delighting in the bounty of God's promises frees us from sinful patterns, to the glory of Christ!
In ten sessions Piper teaches on:
· A Passion for Holiness
· Justification by Faith and the Necessity of Perseverance
· What Is Faith?
· The Crucial Function of Bygone Grace
· The Role of Gratitude in Producing Obedience
· How Faith in Future Grace Produces Radical Love
· Future Grace Versus Anxiety and Covetousness
· Future Grace Versus Lust, Bitterness, and Impatience
Recorded in HD, these video sessions are ideal for use in adult and youth Sunday school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, and families. To get the most from this resource, use it along with Future Grace DVD Study Guide.
In Future Grace, author John Piper helps readers discover the key to overcoming sin and living a life that honors God. Many men and women attempt to walk upright out of gratitude for what Christ did in the past, but Piper encourages believers to look ahead to the grace God provides for us on a day-by-day, moment-by-moment basis—putting faith into action by laying hold of God’s promises for the challenges we face.
Sever the Root of Sin
No one sins out of duty. We sin because we want to. Sin promises happiness, and we buy the lie. So how can the root of sin be severed in our lives? The penalty of sin must be paid by the righteous blood of Christ. And the power of sin must be broken by banking on the promises of Christ.
John Piper’s meditations are rooted in rock-solid biblical reflection. Chapter by chapter—one for each day of the month—he reveals how, by cherishing the promises of God, you can break the power of anxiety, despondency, covetousness, lust, bitterness, impatience, pride, misplaced shame, and more.
