There Is No More Important Struggle in the Universe

Surely then, this is worth fighting for.  It may feel strange at first but when we see what is at stake, no battle will seem more important.  Loving Christ involves delight in his Person.  Without this love no one goes to heaven.  Therefore there is no more important struggle in the universe than the struggle to see and savor Christ above all things – struggle for joy.

– Piper, John; When I Don’t Desire God: How to Fight for Joy; copyright 2004; Crossway Books; Wheaton, Il.; p. 35
