Sometimes we may feel far from God, and life feels heavy. Sometimes we get lazy or too busy, and we neglect to read the Bible for a time.
In his book When I Don’t Desire God, John Piper contends that the only way to know real joy as a Christian is to pursue the Word of God. Not just pursue it, but to actually fight daily for this joy. It is a battle for our time and our minds.
Before reading this book, I never thought of pursuing God’s Word in the morning as a daily battle. Now I realize how precious this time is and how easily we can let daily life distract us from this joy.
I recommend John Piper’s book, and it can be found in the Grace Point Library! Visit us soon ~ we are open any time the church is open!
