“If the enjoyment of God Himself is not the final and best gift of love, then God is not the greatest treasure, His self-giving is not the highest mercy, the gospel is not the good news that sinners may enjoy their Maker, Christ did not suffer to bring us to God, and our souls must look beyond Him for satisfaction.”

-John Piper, God is the Gospel, pg12

    This is so good on so many levels!! If only more people thought like this. It can be discouraging, at times, to minister to people with small views of God.

    Thanks for the quote Joel!! =)
