Desiring God - Do We Have to Enjoy God to Believe? - John Piper
If joy is so critical to the Christian life, then how does it relate to saving faith? Is it the happy product of faith, or is it an essential piece of all saving faith? In eight minutes, John Piper explores the relationship between our faith in Jesus and our joy in him.
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.

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.
