Daily audio clips of John Piper answering tough theological and pastoral questions.
How Do We ‘Dwell in the Shelter of the Most High’?
Psalm 91 offers spectacular promises for the one who “dwells in the shelter of the Most High.” What does dwelling in the shelter of God mean for us today?
Five Ways Pastors Fail
Countless pastors carry out their ministries faithfully — and some abuse their position and cause many to stumble. What does God have to say to hypocritical pastors?
Are Non-Christian Marriages Valid in God’s Eyes?
God made marriage to picture the relationship of Christ and his church. Does it follow that a marriage between an unbelieving man and woman is illegitimate?
Has God Abandoned Me?
God has promised never to leave us or forsake his people. So how do we respond when it feels like he has?
Parenting Through a Family Crisis
If we’re going to parent well through family troubles, we need to know, first, that our own sin is our worst problem, and second, that Jesus’s blood covers it all.
Ingredients for a Theology of Feasting
The Bible talks a lot about feasting — far more than about fasting, in fact. So what is feasting, and how might we enjoy it in our Christian lives?
Unashamed Gospel Reminders
I love the way this podcast has no fear in speaking truth into this dark world. I appreciate the “quick hitters” in my week that remind me that the truth is not something to be ashamed about in darkness. Thank you for all you do to center us in Gods word on a variety of practical earthly topics!
Short Encouraging Biblical Episodes
As a young adult in today’s culture, I am encouraged and eager to listen 3 times a week to APJ because they are great quick encouraging questions that are rooted in Biblical truth. John Piper amazingly goes deep in such a short podcast. It’s been a great resource that has blessed my friend group and we actively share this podcast amongst another! It has also been a huge factor in helping us find reformed doctrine and has blessed us abundantly in our faith.
Jesus’ most neglected teachings...
More people & podcasts are talking these days about the things Jesus taught (in the 4 gospels), but there are a few of his teachings that almost never get serious coverage. Several references (EXCLUDING the “rich young ruler”) are made in Luke about selling all of one’s possessions & giving to the poor and then this teaching is shown to be taken seriously by the time we get to the book of Acts (end of chapters 2 & 4).
Another powerful & often neglected paradigm-changing (IF taken at face value) teaching of Jesus is found in Mt. 6:24; Lk. 16:13-14). This has been called the “Two Masters teaching”, one being God/Love and the other/opposite one being money.
What would Christianity look like, both inside its confines and to the world at large, if these teachings were given much more serious consideration and application?
Take a leap of faith and dive deep into these teachings! ✌🏼
