Our Duty, Our Reason, Our Joy


[God] does everything that he does–absolutely everything–for the sake of displaying his glory.  Our duty and privilege, therefore, is to conform to this divine purpose in creation and history and redemption–namely, to reflect the value of God’s glory–to think and feel and do whatever we must to make much of God.  Our reason for being, our calling, our joy is to render visible the glory of God.

– John Piper in A God-Entranced Vision of All Things, p. 23
