Desiring God - Does Joy Die in Sorrow? - John Piper
How can Christians experience joy and happiness when life is so full of heartache and suffering? In ten minutes, John Piper highlights Paul’s supernatural words and emotions: “sorrowful, yet always rejoicing.” He ends by sharing about the day he learned his mom had been killed in a car accident.
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.
