Don't Waste Your Life Sentence

What are you doing with your life? When we look around in our society today, we see people who in our eyes are wasting their lives - drunkards, drug addicts, beggars, prostitutes, criminals, prisoners etc. What we tend to (or want to) forget is that the hard-working, honest, church-going businessman with a wife and two children and a nice home may just as well be wasting his life, if he is living only for this life and what the world has to offer.

Several years after writing his excellent book Don't Waste Your Life, John Piper and his ministry Desiring God will be releasing a new movie entitled "Don't Waste Your Life Sentence" on 20 August 2010. This movie tells the story of people who have wasted their lives and have become rejects of society, but have had their lives radically changed by the gospel. They have found hope and peace and freedom in Jesus Christ and now have a reason to live again and the desire not to waste their lives.

You can see the trailer here:


What can we learn from these kind of people who were failures and have lost everything? Probably a lot more than you realise...
