Let the Nations Be Glad

“THERE WILL BE NO PASSION TO DRAW OTHERS INTO OUR WORSHIP WHERE THERE IS NO PASSION FOR WORSHIP”

In John Piper’s book entitled “Let The Nations Be Glad”, I read this very meaningful phrase. God indeed is most pleased when my worship is especially for Him alone. For what does winning others “for Him” counts, when my life speaks of otherwise? For what does sharing the Gospel counts, when my life is not bringing glory to Him alone? The first commandment is true in its plain sense: To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind. By bypassing the first commandment, I cannot go on to the second, third, and so on.

As for you reader of this blog, if you know God and have a personal relationship with Him, I pray for you to be a person whose life’s central theme is the supremacy of God, whose passion is God in all of life. For in being that kind of person will missions and evangelism will have its true meaning, not only for you but to others as well.

And for you dear reader who knows God, yet you feel you are not yet right with Him and that you feel you are too far away from God, always remember that God loves you. God loves you beyond your imagination. No matter how dirty you feel before Him, how far away you feel from God, He is near and is ready to forgive you.
