Deep-seated transformation of our pleasures

“The power that saves and sanctifies is the work of God deep beneath the human will to transform the springs of joy so that we love God more than sex or seas or scholarship or food or friends or fame or family or money.  Grace is the key because it is free and creates a new heart with new delights that govern the will and the work of our lives.  “It does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy” (Romans 9:16).”  (John Piper, The Legacy of Sovereign Joy, pg72)
