Future Grace

About This Book

Explore this stunning quality of God’s grace:  It never ends!

In this revision of a foundational work, John Piper reveals how grace is not only God’s undeserved gift to us in the past, but also God’s power to make good happen for us today, tomorrow, and forever.

True life for the follower of Jesus really is a moment-by-moment trust that God is dependable and fulfills his promises.  This is living by faith in future grace, which provides God's mercy, provision, and wisdom—everything we need—to accomplish his good plans for us. 

In Future Grace, chapter by chapter—one for each day of the month—Piper reveals how cherishing the promises of God helps break the power of persistent sin issues like anxiety, despondency, greed, lust, bitterness, impatience, pride, misplaced shame, and more.

Ultimate joy, peace, and hope in life and death are found in a confident, continual awareness of the reality of future grace.

Grace is such an important thing in our lives as Christians.  God gave us grace, so we as Christians must give grace back to others; something that is missing in today's Christian's life it seems.

What is grace? Grace is receiving something we do not deserve.    I did enjoy chapter 6 : Grace Vs Pride.  Pride is something that can creep in very quickly and unseen in our lives.  Mr. Piper handles this very well in the chapter.  Although I am not a huge fan of Mr. Piper, I believe he has handled the subject of grace very well.
