John Piper Quote

"There are 2 ways Satan assaults the glory of God in our lives: pleasure and pain...he uses pain to make us feel that God is powerless and hostile ......and he uses pleasure to make us feel that God is unnecessary..." John Piper

This reminded me today of the importance to preach the gospel to ourselves... Through Christ our pain is made into righteousness as we endure through the pain in complete dependence of Him. And through Christ all pleasure and ultimate satisfaction can be truly known. Yes, I am thankful that Satan does not have to have a stronghold in our lives because of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Praise be to Him.

Keep enduring saints!
