God’s Pursuit of Praise, Our Pursuit of Pleasure

John PiperDesiring God | “God’s pursuit of praise from us and our pursuit of pleasure in Him are one and the same pursuit. God’s quest to be glorified and our quest to be satisfied reach their goal in this one experience: our delight in God, which overflows in praise. For God, praise is the sweet echo of His own excellence in the hearts of His people. For us, praise is the summit of satisfaction that comes from living in fellowship with God.”

(HT: Symphony of Scripture)

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.
