Book Description

When Faith Flickers, Stoke the Fire

No one sins out of duty. We sin because it offers some promise of happiness. That promise enslaves us–until we believe that God is more desirable than life itself (Psalm 63:3). Only the power of God’s superior promises in the gospel can emancipate our hearts from servitude to the shallow promises and fleeting pleasures of sin.

In this twelve-chapter study guide developed by Desiring God, you will find practical ways to sever the clinging roots of sin that ensnare us, including anxiety, pride, shame, impatience, covetousness, bitterness, despondency, and lust.

Delighting in the bounty of God’s glorious gospel promises will free us for a less sin-encumbered life, to the glory of Christ. Rooted in solid biblical reflection, this book aims to help guide you through the battles to the joys of victory by the power of the gospel and its superior pleasure.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Lesson 1



It is our prayer that after you have finished this lesson…

• You will get a feel for how you and others in your group approach the Christian life.
• Your curiosity would be roused, and questions would begin to come to mind.
• You will be eager to learn more about how you can live your life by faith in future grace.


1. What is your name?

2. Tell the group something about yourself that they probably don’t already know.

3. Describe your relationship with Jesus.


1. In your own words, describe your battle against unbelief. How does this battle unfold? What weapons do you have in this battle? Describe any strategies that you use to overcome sin in your life. What motivates you to make war on sin?

Think about the phrase “Living by Faith in Future Grace.” What do you think this phrase means?

To battle unbelief is at the core of what we need to do every day. Piper does an excellent job of describing our need and a biblical foundation for living by Faith in Future grace.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great study... poor study guide. March 1, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The videos of John Piper teaching this subject are fantastic. But this study guide doesn't follow it very well. Some of the questions seem out-of place at times. I do not recommend this study guide.
