*He commands us to be happy

Faith

Today I discovered the Desiring God app and took in a sermon by John Piper entitled The Joyful Purpose of God. Some really great words. I highly recommend checking out more by Piper! I know I will be. Here are my notes:

1. The best news in the world is that there is no necessary conflict between our happiness and God’s Holiness.
2. Trusting God for everything brings him honor and us happiness
3. God’s purpose to be glorified and our longing to be satisfied succeed in trusting in the Grace of God. When you trust in God’s grace he gets the glory and you get the joy!
