Sunday Selections: If…?

The critical question for our generation—and for every generation—is this: If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with heaven, if Christ was not there?

from John Piper’s “God Is The Gospel”

One response to “Sunday Selections: If…?”

  1. Dear Angie…

    A challenging and sobering question…

    I hope that I have learned through my seasons ‘in the dark’ that the good things noted are indeed wonderful, but still suprisingly lacking and fleeting. He is the only one who brings enduring satisfaction…

    Praying for you this morning, my far away friend, that your day will be filled with sweet things and a deep and lingering awareness of the tender embrace of the Father.

    Many blessings…
    Marsha
