Piper on Suffering

The Desiring God blog has a roundup of Piper's messages during his time in Wheaton
  • Treasuring Christ and the Call to Suffer, Part 1 If you are a Christian, it is not a question of whether you will suffer, but when. And natural suffering like disease or disasters can be as much for Christ as persecution is.
  • Part 2 Whether God is delivering us from suffering or prolonging it, one thing is most important to him—displaying the worth of Christ.
  • Part 3 God ordains and orders the suffering of the world to show how horrific sin is.
  • Part 4 How can we have joy amid so much suffering?
  • Q & A John Piper answers questions from Wheaton students
