Yearn – Shane & Shane
 
04:16
Music has a unique ability to affect the human soul. The synergy of words and tunes helps us express reality, and feel reality, especially when it resonates with our deepest desires. “Lord, I want to yearn for you” is a simple line. But for the heart whose passionate pursuit is to know Jesus, this line is an earnest prayer. It is a soundtrack for the life that longs to treasure him more. https://desiringgod.org http://shaneandshane.com Lyrics: Holy design This place in time That I might seek and find my God Lord, I want to yearn for You I want to burn with passion over You And only You Lord, I want to yearn for You I want to burn with passion over You And only You Lord, I want to yearn Your joy is mine Yet why am I fine With all my singing and bringing grain In light of Him Oh, You give life and breath In You we live and move That's why I sing

When a Man Loves a Woman Well
 
04:00
If you want to measure a man, look to the women around him. Woman is the glory of man (1 Corinthians 11:7) — in friendships, marriages, families, churches, and societies — so where women are flourishing, honored, and cherished, we know the men are acting as God intended. With their minds flooded with the knowledge of the gospel, Christian men see their sisters in Christ, and all women, not as things to be manipulated or dominated, but as treasures to honor, guard, and cherish.

Without Jesus – Shane & Shane

Lyrics: Just three chords and a melody Won't leave you a living legacy Without Jesus Just four songs and a parable Might leave you something terrible Just five bucks in an offering Won't buy you some prosperity Just a sixth sense of morality Won't get you out of your depravity Without Jesus, oh, without Jesus You could memorize Become a Mennonite You could speak in tongues And raise the dead to life You could build a big church Call it ministry Teach 'em all they need to know to run a family You could sell it all Be burned at the stake But what in the world have you to ever gain Without Jesus, oh, without Jesus If all I ever get out of laying my life down Is thorns in the shape of a crown On the brow of a man from Nazareth And if all I get is what Jesus did, And said, and put within my heart Then I get it all I have it all Oh, I have it all Everything is mine Oh, I have it all I have it all Just three chords and a melody Won't leave you a living legacy Without Jesus

How to Fight Laziness // Ask Pastor John
 
04:51
Hard work is not a consequence of the fall, but a gift. If we are going to fight laziness, we need to develop a good theology of work. We received an email from an anonymous man who writes, “Pastor John, I am a regenerate Christian who formerly lived the homosexual lifestyle. God used your theology of suffering and brokenness to overcome my sexual desires for ungodly things. But now a new struggle has come upon me — the struggle of laziness. Do you have any advice on how to fight this sin?” Episode 79: https://www.desiringgod.org/interviews/how-to-fight-laziness Related Resources: “God’s Sovereign Plans Behind Your Most Unproductive Days” https://youtu.be/7uo1HzyfLG8 “Ten Principles for Personal Productivity” https://youtu.be/DFm4U66MsNs “Three Steps to Stop Wasting Your Life” https://youtu.be/H8Y9DXNqFzc “Procrastination Is Pride” https://youtu.be/k68RvNuEZKE Ask Pastor John Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKvMOJ1T8T4&list=PLFF7F6AE365DA3564 Find other popular Ask Pastor John episodes, http://desiringgod.org/ask-pastor-john

Keep Looking: The Life Changing Secret to Reading the Bible
 
02:57
A biologist once told a story about his Harvard professor named Louis Agassiz, who taught him a simple habit to help him see more than he ever dreamed. The lesson he learned is also the secret to lifelong and life-changing Bible reading: keep looking. One reason we see so little when we read the Bible is that we do not give ourselves long enough to look. John Piper shares the story “Agassiz and the Fish” in his new book “Reading the Bible Supernaturally” (https://desiringgod.org/books/reading-the-bible-supernaturally). In the seemingly ordinary act of reading the Bible, something miraculous happens: God gives us new eyes to see more of him — if we are willing to slow down and keep looking. http://desiringgod.org/keep-looking Script: David Mathis, Marshall Segal (Adapted from an excerpt from “Reading the Bible Supernaturally”) Production: Stefan Green Voice Over: John Piper Creative Direction & Animation: Jorge R Canedo E.

No Ocean Big Enough: The Beauty of God in the World He Made – John Piper
 
02:22
When we look at oceans or mountains, whales or bears, fields or deserts, God wants us to see the beauty, power, and wisdom in his creation and think, “What must God be like!” He wants us to ride the waves he has made into worship, and climb the mountains he built to see more of him. The sermon clip is from a message John Piper preached on Sunday, February 8, 1987 entitled, “The Pleasure of God in His Creation.” Read or listen to the entire message at http://desiringgod.org/messages/the-pleasure-of-god-in-his-creation --- Transcript --- What a God. What power! Why did he lavish such a universe upon a creature like us? Why isn’t that overdoing it! What a universe! And what a God. God rejoices in the works of creation because they point us beyond themselves to God. God does mean for us to be stunned and awed by his creation, but not for its own sake. He means for us to say, “If the work of God’s hands is so abundant with power, and wisdom, and majesty, and grandeur, and beauty, what must God be like? What must the Creator be like, if the flinging out of his fingers is so majestic and grand and great and glorious? In the end, it’s not going to be the seas. It’s not going to be the ocean. It’s not going to be the deserts, or the flowers, or the mountains. It’s not going to be the grand galaxies. It’s going to be God himself that satisfies the soul. Nothing short of God will do. The infinite expanses of the galaxies will not satisfy my longing for grandeur — only the Maker himself. “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!”

Why Is My Delight in God So Short Lived? // Ask Pastor John
 
11:38
We all long for enduring joy, but we often forgot a simple step: start by praying for your Bible reading before you begin. Here’s a good, honest question from a podcast listener named Seth. “Hello, Pastor John! I believe intellectually that learning about God can provide greater joy than whatever temporary pleasure I may get from the many distractions that this world has to offer, and have experienced times in my life where it has. However, these times are generally short lived and expire very quickly. Could you give me some tips as to how to be more satisfied in the things of the Lord than the things of the world — and in a way that endures? I know that spending hours watching television or playing games throughout the day is a waste of my time, yet I struggle to stop doing these things.” Episode 903: https://www.desiringgod.org/interviews/why-is-my-delight-in-god-so-short-lived Related Resources: “Do We Have Joy or Fight for It?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vx6PBmWuFeU “How Do I Feed My Joy in Jesus Every Morning?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm1gnecsaC4 “Three Threats to the Joy of This Generation” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r97V7ox0n0o “Does John Piper Add (Joy) to the Gospel?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vumgkJpZ5lE Ask Pastor John Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNYK17fp9r0&list=PLFF7F6AE365DA3564 Find other recent and popular Ask Pastor John episodes, http://desiringgod.org/ask-pastor-john

The Golden Rule in Christian Dating
 
03:01
The first and greatest commandment in Christian dating — for you and your significant other — is the same as in all of life: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30). But after you’ve embraced, applied, and enjoyed the first and greatest commandment, the golden rule in dating is this: Lean hard on the people who know you best, love you most, and will tell you when you’re wrong. We need friends who love God even more than they love us. Only people who love Christ more than they love you will have the courage to tell you that you’re wrong in dating — and give you the encouragement, truth, wisdom, and perspective you need.
