“Obedience is our task.
The results of that obedience is God’s, and God’s alone…
God seems to lay out the order of things
not for the general and brilliant triumph
but for the hidden sanctification of individual souls…
The will of God is always far different from what we imagine,
far bigger, far more difficult,
but unspeakably more glorious!”

“If you want your life to count, if you want the ripple effect of the pebbles you drop to become waves that reach the ends of the earth and roll on into eternity, you don’t need to have a high IQ. You don’t need to have good looks or riches or come from a fine family or a fine school. Instead you have to know a few great, majestic, unchanging, obvious, simple, glorious things - or one great all-embracing thing - and be set on fire by them.”
— John Piper (Don’t Waste Your Life)

Another quote from Consumer Detox

Q: What’s the difference between a bus stop and an art gallery?

A: Nothing much. It’s just that we pay better attention in an art gallery.

“Grace says it doesn’t matter where you’re coming from. All that matters is which way you’re facing, and just taking one step at a time.”

“This is how we’ll beat consumerism - with the power of thankfulness; with intoxicating joy; with uncontainable delight.”

“…you have to be utterly convinced that you exist because God wanted you to; and that because God wanted you to exist, he liked the thought of you. In which case, there’s not much alternative, really, but to go along with what God wanted - i.e. to give thanks for being yourself and rejoice in it. Not in a way that says, I’m entirely fine, mature, virtuous, balanced, brave, and modest - God doesn’t like the thought of us because he admires us; he just likes the thought of this particular person, warts and all, existing as a place where glory may be visible. So when we delight in being ourselves, we’re not passing an approving judgement on all we do and suggesting that we need no improvement and face no radical challenge, we’re acknowledging with joy the fact of our unique existence, as willed by God.”
— Archbishop Rowan Williams
