I’ve been really challenged by one of books on our ABWE Required Reading list. In Let the Nations Be Glad, John Piper writes, “[God’s] goal is the gladness of his people, because God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him. Delight is a higher tribute than duty.” I am a very task-oriented person. My wife has often told me that I have an over-developed sense of duty. Perhaps that’s why I resisted Piper’s claim. However, I can’t deny that God has on several occasions basically said to me, “Andy – you’re not happy enough for me.” God wants more joy and celebration in my life. Wow – what a thing to have to work on. That’s like getting a job as an ice cream tester! That’s not work, that’s pure pleasure! To think that I could bring glory to God, not just by working for him, but by enjoying him so much that the joy just oozes out of me. What a thought!
