Left to Ourselves, We Will Not Produce It

In other words, we need the gift of joy in God.  Left to oursevles, we will not produce it.  That’s what Christ bought for us when he died and shed the blood of the new covenant.  He bought for us the gift of joy in God.

– Piper, John; When I Don’t Desire God: How to Fight for Joy; copyright 2004; Crossway Books; Wheaton, Il.; p. 53
