Don't Waste Your Life: Click for the free PDF book

Oh, how many lives are wasted by people who believe that the Christian life means simply avoiding badness and providing for the family.  So there is no adultery, no stealing, no killing, no embezzlement, no fraud – just lots of hard work during the day, and lots of TV and PG-13 videos in the evening (during quality family time), and lots of fun stuff on the weekend-woven around church (mostly).  This is life for millions of people.  Wasted life.  We were created for more, far more.  John Piper, Don’t Waste Your Life, ch. 7, pps. 119-120.

Ouch.  That hits close to home.  Full book available in PDF here.
