For many people, maintaining a proper weight and a healthy relationship with food is a constant struggle. In an audio message shared Tuesday on his website, DesiringGod.org, Pastor John Piper, chancellor of the Minnesota-based Bethlehem College & Seminary, talks with pastor and author Paul David Tripp about food and weight loss. The pastors say the battle to lose weight isn't just physical, it's spiritual.

It is only when your heart is properly satisfied with God that you now have the power to say no to other things that would tempt you to go there for satisfaction." more >>
