"Boasting Only in the Cross" and a list of other recommended sermons

13 Sep

Just came across this sermon from John Piper that he preached at the Passion One Day Conference in 2000, titled “Boasting Only in the Cross.”  Here’s a short excerpt from the introduction of the sermon below:

You don’t have to know a lot of things for your life to make a lasting difference in the world. But you do have to know the few great things that matter, and then be willing to live for them and die for them. The people that make a durable difference in the world are not the people who have mastered many things, but who have been mastered by a few great things. If you want your life to count, if you want the ripple effect of the pebbles you drop to become waves that reach the ends of the earth and roll on for centuries and into eternity, you don’t have to have a high IQ or EQ; you don’t have to have to have good looks or riches; you don’t have to come from a fine family or a fine school. You have to know a few great, majestic, unchanging, obvious, simple, glorious things, and be set on fire by them.

Listen to this (and other sermons) here.  Justin Taylor has collected a list of “Important Sermons and Articles That Are Worth Reading” – sermons that people like Bryan Chapell, Graham Cole, Mark Dever, Kevin DeYoung, Stephen J. Nichols, Ray Ortlund, John Piper, David Powlison, Fred Sanders, R.C. Sproul, Carl R. Trueman, Bruce Ware, and Donald Whitney have recommended.
