The Chief End of Missions: The Supremacy of God in the Joy of All Peoples

This is the first post with my sermon notes from the Cross Conference (CrossCon) that was held from December 27-30, 2013, in Louisville, KY. To see my other sermon notes from CrossCon, click here

Speaker: John Piper                                        Key text: Various

Four reasons CrossCon is a dream come true for John Piper:

  1. It’s a time to share the good news and create a redeemed people
  2. It’s a time to remind ourselves that we are all lost and on our way to hell if we don’t treasure Jesus above all
  3. It’s a time to be thankful for the recent resurgence of solid theology and the stories of God’s sovereignty, especially among the Millennial generation
  4. It’s a time to challenge each other to make our lives count for unreached people, whether you are a “goer” or a “sender”

The chief end of missions is the supremacy of God in the joy of all peoples. God’s chief aim is to be stunning to the world. This only happens when we are stunned by Him. The world will see the supreme value of God when we value Him supremely. If you remove the enjoyment of God from faith, it ceases to be faith. Enjoyment of God is so essential to faith, obedience, life, and joy, that if you remove enjoyment of God, then they cease to exist.  Read more of this post
