Something to think about on an icy day…

December 15, 2008
As most of us will be spending a good deal of time indoors this week, I thought I would give us something to think about and maybe even discuss.  What do you think of the quote below?  It is from one of my favorite pastors/writers, John Piper.  I would love to hear from you in the comments section…jeff
“God is the one Being in the entire universe for whom self-centeredness, or the pursuit of his own glory, is the ultimately loving act. For him, self-exaltation is the highest virtue. When he does all things ‘for the praise of his glory,’ he preserves for us and offers to us, the only thing in the entire world, which can satisfy our longings. God is for us, and therefore has been, is now and always will be, first, for himself. I urge you not to resent the centrality of God in his own affections, but to experience it as the fountain of your everlasting joy.” (John Piper)
What do you think???

    I think John Piper’s quote is right on. Our focus should be on God. EVERYTHING we do should be done for His glory. God gave me the ability to have talents. I try and give back the outcome of that talent in praise and worship. Que viva Cristo!
