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.
