John Piper is Back

January 1, 2011

John Piper took a leave of absence in March of 2010 from all public ministry except for a few speaking engagements.  His leave of absence ended today.  I discovered this through Twitter.  This was his first tweet:

Hallowed be Your Name! Treasured be Your Triune Being! Above all. Infinitely above all. This is my desire in every desire.”

He also posted a blog about what he learned.  I’m glad he’s back.  I have missed his tweets, they are full of wisdom.  And I have missed his sermons, they are full of passion. Most of all I have missed his ability to speak the unvarnished truth of God without apologizing or watering it down.  We need more pastors like John Piper.

    Hi Jennifer, I’m Debra Weiss. We know each other on Twitter. I decided to stop by your website tonight and came across your testimony ‘My Faith and Doubt’. I just wanted to tell you how beautiful and moving it was. I love that God cares so much about us that He won’t let us stay surface Christians.

    Hugs to you dear sister,

    Debra
