Adored, Not Analyzed
John Piper had a wonderful blurb about when God called Him to pastor. He describes God speaking to him and saying,
I will not simply be analyzed; I will be adored.
I will not simply be pondered; I will be proclaimed.
My sovereignty is not simply to be scrutinized; it is to be heralded.
It is not grist for the mill of controversy; it is gospel for sinners who know that their only hope is the
sovereign triumph of God’s grace over their rebellious will.
This is wonderful! Thank God for John Piper's ministry. Thank God that he counted him faithful and put John in the ministry. Thank God that he put me in the glorious business of declaring His infinite worth and excellencies!
Notice that God told Piper that His sovereignty was to be heralded. May Sovereign Grace Church ever preach the full, complete, unadulterated truth of a God who does all that He pleases in Heaven and Earth.
With a broken and grateful heart,
