Life Is Short. Eternity Is Long. Live Like It. You will exist forever. You and God are both in the universe to stay—either as friends on his terms, or enemies on yours. Which it will be is proven in this life. And this life is a vapor. Two seconds, and we will be gone. Surely God means for our time on earth to count for something significant. In these thirty-one meditations, John Piper will connect you to a fresh understanding of God and a renewed relationship with him. You’ll find your faith stirred to make every day count for Christ as you consider life as a vapor.
I will forever live my life trying to remember the important message I have learned from Pastor Piper—to glorify God by enjoying Him forever.
—Mac Powell, Third Day
John Piper remains a trustworthy and faithful voice, urging God’s people to behold, partake of, delight in, and live for the glory of God.
John Piper’s books continue to renew my sense of wonder at the mystery and wildness of our Creator God. I am thankful for his sensitivity to both the head and the heart of the gospel of Jesus.
—Charlie Lowell from Jars of Clay
