This is What Satan Wants to Hide from the Eyes of Our Hearts

This is what Satan desparately wants to hide from the eyes of our hearts – a spiritual sight of Christ’s glory in the gospel.  Not just facts, but the beauty of the facts.  The saving response to this spiritual apprehension of glory in the cross of Christ must include a pleasing sense of Christ’s beauty.  It is inconceivable that fgaith would find Christ distasteful.  It is inconceivable that the regenerate heart could look upon the glory of Christ in the gospel with indifferent or negative affections.

– Piper, John; When I Don’t Desire God: How to Fight for Joy; copyright 2004; Crossway Books; Wheaton, Il.; p. 35-36
