If God is to love you, what must he give you? He must give you what is best for you. The best thing in all the universe is God. If he were to give you all health, best job, best spouse, best computer, best vacations, best success in any realm, and yet withhold himself, then he would hate you. And if he gives you God and nothing besides, he loves you infinitely.”

– John Piper


God’s Love

I’m sure that we all know the verse from 1 John 4:19… “We love Him, because He first loved us.” Well, I’m just curious if it would also be correct to say: “God loved us, because He first loved Himself.” I’m thinking that if God is all glorious, and worthy of praise, then His love for us must be the overflow of His love for His own glory. I’ve been reading “God is the Gospel” by John Piper and this was one of my thoughts…

What do you all think?
