Over the life of this blog, I have gone through seasons of inspiration and seasons of silence. Obviously, for the past several months, silence has been trumping inspiration. Since my own original content is lacking, I thought I’d start a weekly series sharing quotes, verses and passages that I have enjoyed, been thinking of, or came across in the previous week.
For the inaugural post, I thought I’d share a favorite passage from John Piper’s book God Is the Gospel, which I’ve been re-reading recently after first reading it my senior year of college. Man, I had forgotten how deep and complex Piper’s books are!
“…All the saving events and all the saving blessings of the gospel are means of getting obstacles out of the way so that we might know and enjoy God most fully. Propitiation, redemption, forgiveness, imputation, sanctification, liberation, healing, heaven–none of these is good news except for one reason: they bring us to God for our everlasting enjoyment of him.” (47)
Hope you enjoy this new series!
