Desiring God - How Does Joy Overflow in Love? - John Piper

If joy in God is so central to the Christian life, what does that mean for our joy in other people. How does the heart and mind of a Christian Hedonist spill over in love for others. John Piper explains several key texts that should shape the way we relate to and serve each other.

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:
