What Do You Revolve Around?

All the planets of your life—from your labor and leisure to your thinking and feeling—are held in orbit by the greatness, gravity, and blazing brightness of Jesus Christ at the center of your life. When He ceases to be the center, the planets of your life fly into confusion, sending a hundred things out of control. Pastor John Piper’s powerful teaching is recorded during an intimate retreat for youth leaders and students onto three The Blazing Center DVDs. With the study guide, this is an ideal package for adult and youth Sunday school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, and families.

God Is the Blazing Sun

at the Center of Reality

Everything revolves around Him. And as the most valuable and glorious person who exists, God is loving, not conceited, when he calls us to worship Him. His pursuit of glory and our pursuit of joy are not at odds—because God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.

In these eight 30-minute sessions on three DVDs, John Piper explains from the Bible:

Why God is so passionate about His glory

Why our happiness depends on God’s pursuit of His glory

That God actually commands us to pursue our happiness

That sin is when we abandon God and pursue our happiness in lesser things

How our love for God is revealed by our delight in Him, not our labors for Him

How joy in God overflows in love to meet the needs of others

How only joy in God can sustain us in times of profound suffering

Recorded in the intimate setting of a retreat for youth leaders and students, these sessions are ideal for use in adult and youth Sunday school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, and families. To get the most from this resource, use it along with The Blazing Center Study Guide.

Story Behind the Book

“The greatest news in all the world is that there is no final conflict between my passion for joy and God’s passion for His glory. The knot that ties these together is the truth that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. Jesus Christ died and rose again to forgive the treason of our souls, which have turned from savoring God to savoring self. In the cross of Christ, God rescues us from the house of mirrors and leads us out to the mountains and canyons of His majesty. Nothing satisfies us—or magnifies Him—more.”

—John Piper

Reviews - What do customers think about The Blazing Center DVD: The Soul-Satisfying Supremacy of God in All Things?

After 18 years I finally meet John Piper!  Oct 31, 2008
I am so grateful for the Blazing Center DVD and the exceptional price. I enjoyed immensely seeing the dynamic presentation by an author I have read for all these years. I would love to see this DVD given to many of our grandchildren.
 
Spreading a Passion for God  Sep 30, 2008
Piper has a passion for the glory of Christ that is contagious. I've watched these videos multiple times and glean something from it every time. Amazing that he presents this MEATY material to a youth group and they are transfixed the entire time.

I don't really care for the youth interviews, but I understand given the format of the original presentation. I've used this in a men's group and all enjoyed the material and we had some great discussions.

I'd recommend to anybody. The humility and genuine concern of Piper toward his audience is refreshing against some of the other more famous "christian leaders" today.
 
Blazing Brightly--God at the Center  Feb 27, 2007
Joy in God--necessary? Or simply optional??? John Piper explains why that if Christ is to be the sun at the center of the solar system of our lives, then He must also be our supreme joy over all other "lesser treasures." Glorifying God can only be done from a heart that is glad in God. Deep joy in God is the true foundation for all obedience; treasuring Him over all things is the only Christ-exalting motivation to endure suffering...especially to willfuly choose suffering.
Show it to your Youth Group, Men's/Women's Group, or Home Bible Study. Set your church ablaze with a passion for the glory of God, in the supremacy of Christ over all things in this world. Everything being fueled by a Spirit produced joy and satisfaction in the Lord Himself--to His praise and renoun!

Only because of grace,
--Jeffrey
