Declare War

There is a time for everything, a time to love and a time to hate. A time for peace and a time for war. When we think of the word “war,” we often think about it on a worldwide scale or nation against nation, however, there are raging wars within us all every single day. In John Piper’s now infamous sermon entitled “Make War,” he passionately and emphatically declares; “I hear so many Christians, murmuring about their imperfections, and their failures, and their addiction, and their shortcomings. And I see so little war! Murmur, murmur, murmur. Why am I this way, Make War!”


Maybe for you, the war within is masked so well that no one really knows that you struggle with anxiety, fear, depression, anger or addiction; yet day after day the battle is blaring in your mind and soul. Have you said to yourself “enough is enough” and I am sick and tired of being sick and tired about this issue?!  Then it’s time to take action and it’s time to declare THIS IS WAR.


Take a moment and watch the short clip to be inspired to Make War!
