Don’t Let Them Despise You

D

We posted about this message over a year ago when it was delivered and still highly recommend it to every rebelutionary. Seriously. If you haven’t listened to it yet you are missing out. To our knowledge, there is no better message on 1 Timothy 4:12. Anyway, I stumble across this video excerpt the other day and felt it was worth sharing as a stand-alone piece — especially if accompanied by...

Don’t Waste Your Life. Do Hard Things.

D

If we had to sum up our message in three words we’d say Do Hard Things (duh). But if we had to sum it up in four words we’d say Don’t Waste Your Life. You can guess, then, how excited we were when James Jennings uploaded the above video to The Rebelution Facebook Group.

The sermon was delivered this past Sunday, providential timing for all of us as we prepare for the release of the Modesty Survey results. What is more exciting, Piper hinted at the possibility of a full message on the topic of clothing in the near...

John Piper: A Challenge to Young People

J

In a sermon delivered last Sunday, entitled Holy Ambition: To Preach Where Christ Has Not Been Named, John Piper briefly turns his attention to the children in the audience. In a culture of extended adolescence and spiritual immaturity, his words bear particular relevance to us all. At 7 minutes, 45 seconds, this video is already longer than the attention span of your average, TV-addicted...

Do Hard Things: Don’t Gossip

D

No, our modern-day hero John Piper doesn’t read The Rebelution. But his latest edition of Fresh Words is an unmistakable exhortation for Christians to “do hard things” in the area of gossip. We encourage all of you to read it and take it to heart. Talking to People Rather Than about Them by John Piper You recall that in Luke 18:9, Luke introduces the parable of the Pharisee and...
