Is God for Us or for Himself?

God is not silent.

I hear Him as I cry out for salvation,

I hear Him as I hope in His word,

I hear Him as I cast my anxieties on Him,

I hear Him as I plead for mercy and understanding,

God speaks.

This season in my life seems to be one of continued revelation of God – who He is- and revelation of man – who I am.  One lifts me up to joyful heights of praise and the other kills my flesh.  The ongoing increasing revelation of my God – HOLY HOLY HOLY – and my complete need and utter emptiness apart from His filling renewing saving life in me.

The manifestation of this is a blog that cries for mercy as I consider man… sin… my need; and rejoices to declare the truth that it is ALL about God.  There is no place on His throne for me, except for the wonderful grace that I am in Him and He is in me…wonder of wonders, this hope of Glory.

Here is more sharing of His testimonies…so read, rejoice, re-tell the old old story of Jesus and His love.

This is a sermon given at Wheaton College Chapel in October of 1984 by John Piper entitled “Is God for Us or for Himself?”  It’s only twenty-one minutes long if you listen online or download it (free, always free at Desiring or you can read it here as well.

    it is awesome to think that “this season” in life never has to change. I know that it will, but the truths of God are so infinate that we could meditate on them forever! I love that we can focus on gospel and know that it is inexhaustable! Beautiful! Praise God! Amen!
