Not a Profit-ic Ministry to Say the Least (Go John Piper! Go DG!)

Like many of you, I received a letter from Desiring God, the ministry that is led by Dr. John Piper, Pastor of the Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the letter, I was blown away about how his amazing ministry has kicked it up a notch.

One of the really exciting new things is that all 25+ years of John Piper’s sermons — in print, audo and video (if available) formats — will be accessible to you and others around the world at no cost. … The audio versions you will be able to stream, download, copy, and give to others — for free. We don’t just permit you to do it. We ENCOURAGE you to do it!”

This is the epitome of a servant ministry. Some have a prophetic ministry — some have a profit-ic ministry. How refreshing to see Dr. Piper’s heart in action!
