In a culture where self-gratification and personal success are viewed as the keys to a happy life, Pastor John Piper issues a radically different challenge.
Don’t Waste Your Life is a heartfelt call to make your life count for eternity. Piper acknowledges that there are risks for those who seek to make a lasting difference by faith, but also reassures readers that the risks are worth taking for the cause of the Gospel.
"God created us to live with a single passion: to joyfully display his supreme excellence in all the spheres of life. The wasted life is the life without this passion. God calls us to pray and think and dream and plan and work not to be made much of, but to make much of him in every part of our lives."
Most people slip by in life without a passion for God, spending their lives on trivial diversions, living for comfort and pleasure, and perhaps trying to avoid sin. This book will warn you not to get caught up in a life that counts for nothing. It will challenge you to live and die boasting in the cross of Christ and making the glory of God your singular passion. If you believe that to live is Christ and to die is gain, read this book, learn to live for Christ, and don't waste your life!
