To See Superior Glory and Joy

The fight for joy is the fight to see and believe Christ as more to be desired than the promises of sin.  This faith and sight come by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.  We look to the Word, we ponder and we plead with God that the eyes of our hearts would be opened to see the superior glory and joy.

– Piper, John; When I Don’t Desire God: How to Fight for Joy; Crossway; Wheaton, Ill.; copyright  2004; p. 105
