When I Don't Desire God: How to Fight For Joy: by John Piper
Author: John Piper
|What do you do when you discover that you're not satisfied in God the way he wants you to be? Joy is more than an afterthought of the Christian life; it is the sustaining fruit of a relationship with God. With a radical passion for Christ's glory, John Piper helps you find the joy God wants you to have.|
For over twenty-five years John Piper has trumpeted the truth that ďGod is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.Ē He calls it Christian Hedonism. The problem is that many people, after being persuaded, find that this truth is both liberating and devastating.
Itís liberating because it endorses our inborn desire for joy. And itís devastating because it reveals that we donít desire God the way we should. What do you do when you discover the good news that God wants you to be content in him, but then find that you arenít?
If joy in God were merely the icing on the cake of Christian commitment, this book would be insignificant. But Piper argues that joy is so much more. Our being satisfied in God is necessary to show Godís worthiness and to sustain sacrifices of love.
Jesus endured the cross for the joy that was set before him. He tasted it. It sustained him through the deepest suffering. His Father was glorified. His people were saved. That is what joy in God does.
The absolutely urgent question becomes: What can I do if I donít have it? With a pastorís heart and with radical passion for the glory of Christ, John Piper helps you answer that question.
