Preparing for the Most Dangerous Deeds

God does not delight in reluctant, disinclined obedience.  And we do not feel loved when we are served begrudglingly.  Therefore, to labor for a person’s joy in Christ is not pampering.  It is preparing him for the most dangerous deeds of love.

– Piper, John; When I Don’t Desire God: How to Fight for Joy; Crossway; Wheaton, Ill.; copyright  2004; p. 141
