A Review Of Our Life Groups

We started our Life Groups last night and we had a great turnout and a great study. We are studying the God Is The Gospel series by John Piper on DVDs  and the first session was awesome. You can find this at  www.desiringgod.org

The title itself could be preached for at least a year and then still be untouched. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to go deeper in their walk with God. I was blown away in the first 10 minutes of the DVD.

I will break it down for you….Are you ready? Here it is:

“God Is The Gospel means that God is the highest, best,final, and decisive good in the good news.”

Everything we have is because of God and for God. When we truly grasp this we will be free, not burdened.

John Piper used these verses as well and it has  been in my heart since last night:

24 You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory. 25 Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
Psalms 73:24-25 (ESV)

Who guides us? God

Who receives me to glory? God

Who do we have in heaven? God

What do we want on earth? Nothing but God

If we want something more than God; guess what we are? You guessed it. Idolaters….

It’s ok to like things because God created them for us but we have to remember God created them to bring Him glory.

I am looking forward to the upcoming sessions and going deeper in the Gospel.

Keep it real

Todd
