When God saved us from our sin, he brought us from death into marvelous light and life. But sin still tries to entice us and destroy us, so the call to faith is a call to war. In twenty minutes, John Piper brings this warfare to life, and then begins to apply it to marriage.
Look at the Book is John Piper’s latest effort to help teach people to read the Bible for themselves. It’s an ongoing series of 8–12 minute videos in which the camera is on the text, not the teacher.
As part of this initiative, Desiring God is putting on regional events focused on certain passages of Scripture. Below, you can find all the video from our Look at the Book weekend on 1 Peter 2–3. The clip above is Part 6: Your Desires Want to Kill You.
