John Piper on What Loving Christ Produces

Piper JohnThe Sunday feature of the Worldly Saints blog is all about quotes. No commentary from me, no reflection, etc. Just a provocative or informative quote from a saint in church history.

 

“The more deeply you walk with Christ, the hungrier you get for Christ … the more homesick you get for heaven. … the more you want “all the fullness of God” …. the more you want to be done with sin … the more you want the Bridegroom to come again … the more you want the Church revived and purified for the beauty of Jesus … the more you want a great awakening to God’s reality in the cities … the more you want to see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ penetrate the darkness of all the unreached peoples of the world … the more you want to see false worldviews yield to the force of Truth … the more you want to see pain relieved and tears wipe away and death destroyed … the more you long for every wrong to be made right and the justice and grace of God to fill the earth like the waters cover the sea.” – John Piper in A Hunger for God
