Free Ebook: An All-Consuming Passion for Jesus

January 20, 2014 4 comments

full_1389628035Thousands of college students wait silently in a dark auditorium as you make your way to the podium, under the spotlight. What will you say? What will you offer them?

When he climbs the stage at Passion2014 in Atlanta this weekend, John Piper will face this moment again.

Marking the eighteenth year of his involvement in the conference, this event has inspired some of Piper’s most memorable messages. It was at Passion in 2000 that he appealed to the students to boast only in the cross (Galatians 6:14). The crucifixion of Christ is essential for the Christian’s own identity, he said. “Only boast in the cross of Christ. This is a single idea. A single goal for life. A single passion.”

One Passion, Lived Out

This single passion for Jesus is a shared passion, and it draws Piper back year after year, he said in an interview last year. “The movement is not about any particular cause, it is about the fame of Jesus. This is what unites Louie [Giglio] and me.”

Uniting the aim of every Passion conference is the annual challenge from the students: So how do I live out this single, all-consuming passion for Christ in my own life? What does this look like on my campus, and in my busy schedule?

Answering this challenge has been a theme in Piper’s messages over the years. To breathe fresh life into this theme, and extend its reach further, we collected four of Piper’s pivotal messages from the Passion conferences — including “Boasting Only in the Cross” and three others — into our newest ebook: An All-Consuming Passion for Jesus: Appeals to the Rising Generation.

Fear and Trembling

Serve the Lord with fear, and exult with trembling” (Psa2:11). Let somebody bring this into harmony for me: exult and fear! My son Hans can do it in relation to me, but I can’t do it in relation to God. When I’m writing or doing something else, my Hans sings a little tune for me. If he becomes too noisy and I rebuke him a little for it, he continues to sing but does it more privately and with a certain awe and uneasiness. This is what God wishes: that we be always cheerful, but with reverence.
