A question worth asking and answering…

“…are we in bondage to the pleasures of this world so that, for all our talk about the glory of God, we love television and food and sleep and sex and money and human praise just like everybody else?  If so, let us repent and fix our faces like flint toward the Word of God.  And let us pray:  O Lord, open my eyes to see the sovereign sight that in your presence is fullness of joy and at your right hand are pleasures forevermore (Ps16:11).  Grant, O God, that we would live the legacy of Sovereign Joy.” 

(John Piper, The Legacy of Sovereign Joy, pg74)
