John Piper | Why do you love God?

[su_audio url=”http://cdn.desiringgod.org/audio/events/20100228.mp3?1319778153″%5D

Dr. John Piper is the Pastor for Preaching & Vision at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, MN.  He is also the  Chancellor of Bethlehem College and Seminary an extension ministry of the church providing training for pastors within the local church setting.  He is the founder of Desiring God Ministries which serves as the source of everything Piper.  You will find 30 years of sermons to read, listen to, watch or download.  You can also find many of his books free for download as well.  Dr. Piper is one of the finest expositors and proclaimers of the Scriptures in general and the Gospel in particular.

For those not familiar with Dr. Piper, his theological orientation is that of Calvinism. This, however, should not deter you from gleaning from the depth and breadth of Dr. Piper’s wisdom and insights into the Word of God.  Even if you don’t agree with Calvinism as a theological system, there is no doubt that the Scripture and the God of the Scriptures is the most important thing on his mind.

This video is rich in its content, which means you may have to watch more than once.  It’s about an hour long, but it will challenge you to consider your motivation for loving God.  I hope you invest the time to hear this message.  I am the better for doing so.
