God is the Gospel
I just finished reading through this amazing book by John Piper. I highly recommend it. The book ponders this main question...
Do you feel loved by God because He makes much of you? Or Do you feel loved by God because He frees you to make much of Him?
I'm still pondering this question, and mulling over it.... realizing that I really love to be made much of... I mean isn't that what our culture today says that love is? If someone loves me, they will indeed make much of me, right? Love that doesn't have God at the beginning and end of it is NOT love.
Anyway, read this book, and let me know what you think of it!
