Desiring God - What Is the Secret of Joy in Suffering? - John Piper

How are Christians supposed to rejoice when there is so much wrong in the world and in our lives? Paul makes it clear that joy is not optional for the believer, and that we will suffer if we follow Christ. In eight minutes, John Piper uncovers the secret to unshakeable joy in pain and loss.

John Stephen Piper was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to Bill and Ruth Piper January 11, 1946. When John and his older sister were still small, the family moved to Greenville, South Carolina, where John spent his growing-up years. His father was an itinerant evangelist, and his mother died in 1974 in a bus accident while visiting Israel.

Most people in the world have no experience of deep and abiding joy. Even though it is something we all desperately long for, the assurance that true happiness can be known — fully and forever — is a hope that billions of people live every day without. This is a tragedy. Desiring God is on a mission to change that. Every video they create exists to guide you toward everlasting joy in Jesus Christ. For more information visit: desiringgod.org.
