Item description for Let the Nations Be Glad!: The Supremacy of God in Missions by John Piper & Raymond Todd...

Overview
Why do we do missions? We are told, by Jesus, to preach the gospel and make disciples of all nations. So missions is duty, right? Wrong. If you do missions purely from a sense of duty you will not honor those you are reaching out to, nor will you truly honor God. Duty is the wrong place to look, so where do we find the answer to why we do missions? We turn, according to John Piper, to worship. In our worship of God we encounter God's glory. The overflow from our worship is a desire to share God's glory with others (the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever), and we naturally become missional. When Jesus was asked what the kingdom of God was like, he compared it to a pearl so valuable that one would sell all they owned simply to possess it. Does that seem like duty to you? Instead, Jesus calls us to a new mindset, which flows from the mindset that worship creates in us. Thus, according to Piper, does worship become the goal of missions and the fuel which makes missions possible. Worship as the fuel for missions makes sense to a lot of people, but worship as the goal of missions? Piper reminds us that the true reason we share God with others is to make them worshipers (and sharers) as well. He feels that the true goal of missions is "the gladness of the peoples in the greatness of God." If it is true, (as Piper states) that "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him," then increasing the number of people who are satisfied in God will bring God more glory. And missions is the way we can do that. Missions must be seen as more than simply saving people from sin, though that is a very important aspect. And missions is not just about getting people into heaven, although that is important as well. Instead, through missions we should always seek to make as many people as possible into true worshipers, into those fully satisfied with the greatness of God. With that mindset, missions becomes a joyous experience, as we joyfully share the life-changing presence of God in our lives with those who don't know God. When we have made worship both the fuel and goal of all our missionary endeavors, we realize that "missions is not a recruitment project for God's labor force. It is a liberation project from the heavy burdens and hard yokes of other gods." Missions is never a burden, because it comes out of our overwhelming joy in God's grace and mercy, and we just want to share that joy. So make God the center of your missions

Reviews - What do customers think about Let the Nations Be Glad - MP3?

Im Glad that I read this book  May 3, 2010
Pastor John Pipers book is on fire! I picked it up, read it, now I feel like Im on fire! Searching for God through Let The Nations Be Glad has sparked all sorts of interesting thoughts and conversations for me in my 4 month young Christian life @ the age of 25. I would totally recommend this read to anyone who is interested in devoting their life to Jesus for Gods glory. One of the most interesting thoughts presented in this book to me is the idea of "We cannot know what prayer is for until we know that life is war", and later in the chapter the thought of prayer as being a "war-time walkie talkie". May God bless abundantly all who search for his wisdom.
 
Good stuff to know but BORING.  Mar 14, 2010
This was required reading for me. It is full of good stuff to know. Gives you a theological basis for missions. But it is so boring.
 
Must read!  Jul 27, 2009
"Let the Nations Be Glad" is one of the most concise and theologically relevant books on missions I have ever read. This book is a must have for anyone in any area of ministry, not just missions.
 
An essential book for your life!  Jul 13, 2009
"Let the Nations Be Glad" is an essential for the followers of Jesus Christ. It gives clarity and insight to the call for missions - to glorify God. It's a thoughtful, well written call to love God first and serve him by reaching out to others.
 
Parts 1 and 3 for all, Part 2 for some  Jul 12, 2009
Great book, I just want to add that Parts One and Three (the majority of this book) I would recommend to anyone. Part two is more geared towards today missionaries or missionary leaders and contains a lot of terminology and such. Overall great book and I'm glad i read it.
