Satisfaction. Happiness. Joy. The pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible; its essential.
Read the first chapter of Desiring God.
For 25 years, pastor John Piper has been provoking Christians with the simple but paradigm-shattering truth that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.
Building his message on hundreds of Scriptures, especially from the Psalms, the apostle Paul, and Jesus himselfand echoing the likes of Blaise Pascal, Jonathan Edwards, and C.S. LewisPiper beckons us to approach God with the hedonists abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus not only as our Lord and Savior, but also our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure.
