Good Quote

    I have been listening to some sermons by John Piper the last few days, and I have to admit, I have yet to find another speaker who so aptly sums up the gospel that I long to hear every day than what I'm hearing from Piper. His proclamations of the gospel are so passionate, contangiously so, that I cannot help but feel the yearning for Christ reawakened.

    “Life is not a straight line leading from one blessing to the next and then finally to heaven. Life is a winding and troubled road. Switchback after switchback. And the point of biblical stories like Joseph and Job and Esther and Ruth is to help us feel in our bones (not just know in our heads) that God is for us in all these strange turns. God is not just showing up after the trouble and cleaning it up. He is plotting the course and managing the troubles with far-reaching purposes for our good and for the glory of Jesus Christ.”
