31 meditations from the founder of Desiring God that will connect you to a fresh understanding of God and renew your faith. "You do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away" (James 4:14). Living knowing that your life is a vapor is different than just living. Things here are passing away. You've got to hold on to what will stand. Savor what matters. This collection of thirty-one articles is full of that heart-longing after Christ that distinguishes Piper's preaching ministry. You will feel as though you have stumbled into a garden as you enter these pages. The Scripture cuts, Christ is exalted in God, and we worship Him. Life Is Short. Eternity Is Long. Live Like It. You will exist forever. You and God are both in the universe to stay--either as friends on His terms, or enemies on yours--which it will be is proven in this life. And this life is a vapor. Two seconds, and we will be gone. In these thirty-one meditations, John Piper will connect you to a fresh understanding of God and a renewed relationship with Him. You'll find your faith stirred to make every day count for Christ when you consider life as a vapor. Story Behind the Book Time is precious. We are fragile. Life is short. Eternity is long. Every minute counts. Oh, to be a faithful steward of the breath God has given me. Three texts resound in my ears: "Redeem the time" (Ephesians 5:16 ); "It is required of stewards that one be found trustworthy" (1 Corinthians 4:2); "His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me" (1 Corinthians 15:10 ). Surely God means for our minutes on earth to count for something significant. Paul said, "In the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain" (Philippians 2:16). In the same way, I have good hope from the Lord that my "labor is not in vain in the Lord" (1 Corinthians 15:58 ).… (mais)

A variety of meditations on subjects dear to Piper's heart. I found some to be much more impactful than others. On the whole a good collection and I'm glad that I read through this out loud as a series of sermons to myself. ( )

I've been struck lately with how short and delicate life is... how utterly unpredictable it can be, where one minute a person is alive, conversing with you, and the next day he's gone... just like that. And how things here on this earth are all decaying and dying.. trees, animals, people, food,-everything. We can't hang onto things in this life, b/c they don't last. "Every relationship you have now will end" was one of the statements in this book that resounded with me.

And so I was drawn to this devotional, Life as a Vapor, not in a morbid fashion... but sort of in an existential sense...as I've had these feelings and thoughts on my mind for quite awhile now.


There are 31 meditations in it, with Bible verses, commentary and a prayer.. Not all of the meditations are about life being precarious... but there was lots to ponder and wonder about. Sometimes John Piper is a little over my head.. but that's not too surprising :/

I am definitely going to re-read these devotions, here and there... It speaks truth to me, and that is somehow comforting, despite the initial negatives one might feel about the topic. ( )

Very brief but incredibly insightful and penetration meditations on Scripture that will awaken you to a fresh desire to know God in Christ well. ( )

Nice short devotional insights. I wish there was a little more material. Mostly a rehash of everything else that he's written, divvied up into bite-sized chunks. ( )
