Overview

In Future Grace, author John Piper helps readers discover the key to overcoming sin and living a life that honors God. Many men and women attempt to walk upright out of gratitude for what Christ did in the past, but Piper encourages believers to look ahead to the grace God provides for us on a day-by-day, moment-by-moment basis—putting faith into action by laying hold of God’s promises for the challenges we face.

Sever the Root of Sin

No one sins out of duty. We sin because we want to. Sin promises happiness, and we buy the lie. So how can the root of sin be severed in our lives? The penalty of sin must be paid by the righteous blood of Christ. And the power of sin must be broken by banking on the promises of Christ.

John Piper’s meditations are rooted in rock-solid biblical reflection. Chapter by chapter—one for each day of the month—he reveals how, by cherishing the promises of God, you can break the power of anxiety, despondency, covetousness, lust, bitterness, impatience, pride, misplaced shame, and more.

I usually would not classify a book as amazing seeing as I demand a lot from a writer. It can't be too dull but at the same time must have significant depth. It must be focused and hold my attention without dulling my reason. This book meets all these expectations and then some. John Piper does an excelent job of systematically walking through an issue that plagues and limits many of our spiritual lives. He not only identifies and explains it, he give a biblical alternative, this alternative being future grace, and explains in detail how to apply it. I finished this book feeling refreshed and hopeful that indeed there was a way to renue that flame in my walk with the Lord and to live a life worthy of the calling I have recieved. This book has meant the world to me and I am so greatful that the Lord gave John Piper the grace to understand and write about this subject. I hope this book has the same effect on your life as it has mine. I pray the grace of God will fill you and open your eyes to the greatness of His provision outlined in the book. "Peace be with you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."
