Does Jesus make demands of us? If so, what are they?

What Jesus Demands from the World by John PiperNote: The display and/or download of this book is for personal use only and it may not be distributed, duplicated, or used for any commercial purpose.

The verse on the cover of this book says “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me”. Pretty strong words from Jesus, but just what is this authority and how does it impact us and the world? In “What Jesus Demands from the World” John Piper looks at the commands that Jesus gave. However this is not a legalistic list of rules. Rather it is demands that are good for us, demands that will help us drawer closer to Jesus. John Piper says that Jesus’ demands can be summed up as “Trust and treasure me above all.”

Wherever you are in your spiritual walk with Jesus this book is both challenging and thought provoking.

As well as the pdf book, there is also a very useful study guide at the Desiring God website.

Here are some quotes about the book:

“This book is a special gift from the pen of John Piper. How long has it been since you carefully reflected upon the authoritative commands of Christ? Through these pages you will encounter the Savior and experience the transforming effects of the gospel. Few endeavors are more worthy of your time.”
C. J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace Ministries

“This is a peculiar book. It assumes that the four Gospels are true and unified. It assumes that Jesus not only does things for us but also makes demands of us. And it assumes that Jesus has authority over everyone regardless of their religion, gender, race, income, sexuality, nationality, or culture. You will likely not agree with every point. But you will hear from a Jesus who is more than a soft-spoken, effeminate, marginalized, Galilean hippie-peasant in a dress and has the peculiar notion that he alone is Lord.”
Mark Driscoll, Pastor, Mars Hill Church, Seattle

  1. I purchased this book and would want the whole world to read it. We are so lost without Jesus Christ and it sorrows my heart to know people will miss Him in this life and most importantly, the next.

    Jesus sends His message through the Holy Spirit from time past, He is here in this book telling us to follow Him. Following Him means absolulte submission, love, trust and obedience. Loving Him first means we will do whatever it takes to please Him and recieve His rewards…well, it’s hard to describe the love and peace that rings out of your heart when we obey! He is truly amazing.

  2. Hello Kathy,

    Your response highlights what it is I love about Piper’s books (and sermons etc.). His focus is all about Jesus and what he has done for us.

    What a privilege it is to be a Christian, and yet so often we can take it and Jesus for granted.
