The weight of glory is a happy burden. Thus God is the happiest Being in the Universe. To know Him in His pleasures is to see Him as He is- and to have a fresh encounter with His transforming presence.
If you are hungry for this deep delight, consider the gladness of His great heart. The things that make God glad are the measures of His greatness. Christ and the cross. Choosing His people and bruising His Son. Creating the world and revealing His worth. The gladness of His people in the greatness of His glory.
"Again, John Piper has provided a rich feast for the serious believer. I certainly agree that nothing surpasses a preoccupation with an understanding of God as the ultimate end of everything." John MacArthur, pastor/teacher, Grace Community Church; President of the Master's College and Seminary; founder of Grace to You radio and tape ministry.
"Run, don't walk to buy this remarkable work." Joni Eareckson Tada and Steven Estes in When God Weeps
