by Pastor John Piper – from Bethlehem Baptist Church.
Listen to the passage.
The passage this morning is famous for its difficulty:
“…I am filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body…”
What? There is something lacking in Christ’s afflictions? Doesn’t the rest of Scripture teach us that Christ’s sufferings are finished and complete? What on earth does the apostle Paul mean?
And so, at very little expense to the fellowship, I have flown in a guest speaker—Pastor John Piper—from Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota to preach on this passage ?. Actually this message was first delivered at a Passion conference in the USA and I think the best service I could offer to the church today is to pray and then press the play button. Enjoy!
