“In the end, the only “good name” that matters is not how men feel about us, but how God feels about us. The ultimate slander came on the cross. “Let God deliver him now, if he desires him” (Matthew 27:43). If? There is no question. “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17). This is the only good name that matters in the end. This is true riches. This is the glory of Christ.”
– John Piper, Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ, page 63

So glad that you’re enjoying the book!!! 🙂
And Teri told me that little ole’ YOU actually found the deal on Desiring God!
Way to go, Louis!!!
I saw it and immediately knew how it would profit Sonship! Plus, it couldn’t have complemented John’s message last Sunday better. 🙂
Such a blessing! I hope the others are enjoying it as much as I am!
Amen! Is a servant greater than His master?
