Marriage, Christ, and Covenant: One Flesh for the Glory of God
Marriage is a momentary but glorious gift. It is more than a husband’s and wife’s love for each other — vastly more. Its meaning is infinitely great: the display of the covenant-keeping love between Jesus and his people.
Quest for Joy
What is God like? What’s the meaning and consequence of sin? What did Christ achieve when he died? And what is faith? How you answer those questions makes a tremendous difference in how you share your faith — and how deep and endurable is your joy.
Spectacular Sins and Their Global Purpose in the Glory of Christ
God does not just rule the wind; he rules wickedness, your sin, and the sin of those who have hurt you. The question is, How can this be good news — for you and for the world? We must answer with unswerving allegiance to God’s word. And it is good news.
Look at the Book: 1 Peter 1–2
1 Peter was written to Christians suffering persecution and various other trials because of their faith in Jesus. Peter writes to remind them of the glorious spiritual realities underneath and beyond all that they are experiencing now. They have been born again to hope, and so nothing can frighten them and nothing can steal the eternal inheritance waiting for them in heaven.
“Not only is there no conflict between your happiness and God’s glory, but his glory shines in your happiness, when your happiness is in him.”
John Piper, from God Is Most Glorified in Us When We Are Most Satisfied in Him
