This Week's Sermon: "God Is Most Glorified in Us When We Are Most Satisfied in Him"

God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him. This idea, called "Christian Hedonism" by some, is a massive and pervasive biblical truth that changes everything.

Perhaps the apostle Paul makes it clearest in Philippians 1:12–26.

So, taking up this text — the same as his January 1980 candidating sermon — John Piper clears the table for the biblical feast of pursuing God's glory and our joy, concluding with 11 illustrations from Scripture on how this looks in real life.

It's an understatement to say this is a very important message.
