27.3.15

pray one passion, one desire

#Piper #don'twasteyourlife

That our one passion & desire is that God is glorified in us.

That in treasuring God above all else, expectation shifts and He becomes our Hope.

How this unites us. 

Can we want You more than we want each other. 

Jesus, to Peter: "Do you love me more than these?" 

Ohh... we will have joy in everything. #Content with what we have & what we don't have. Because we are perfectly, perfectly satisfied. 

We will have hope!

That together, our one passion & desire is that God is glorified in us. 
That together, we treasure God above all else. 
That we stop seeking each other as our own treasure? 

-- and together, be fully satisfied in God. 
When I have learnt to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now. In so far as I learn to love my earthly dearest at the expense of God and instead of God, I shall be moving towards the state in which I shall not love my earthly dearest at all. When first things are put first, second things are not suppressed but increased.”  -- C.S. Lewis

Knowing God as the source of our joy -- 


and so having joy.
