Not Having a Spiritual Taste for the Glory of Christ MUST Be Fought

21 Nov

Quote from John Piper’s book, When I Don’t Desire God: How to Fight for Joy.

Available for free here in pdf format at Desiring God ministries.

[H]aving a spiritual taste for the glory of Christ is not morally neutral. Not to have it is evil and deadly. Not to see and savor Christ is an insult to the beauty and worth of his character. Preferring anything above Christ is the very essence of sin. It must be fought. (p. 33)
