True Happiness


“When we see that God’s passion for his own glory leads him to share that passion with us, we also see why his passion for himself is not ‘selfish’ in a pejorative sense.  God is the one being in the universe for whom self-exaltation is the highest virtue and the most loving act, because in exalting himself he displays the one Reality in the universe that can satisfy our souls and he shares the very passion for that Reality that satisfies him.  The object of our happiness is God, and our happiness is God’s happiness.  No greater happiness can be conceived.” – John Piper “God’s Passion for His Glory”
