John Piper on the Prosperity Gospel

What are we doing to glorify God and make him look beautiful? We are such selfish people and we want all the glory for ourselves. Are we satisfied with God and only God though he allows trials and tribulations? What have we made our treasure? Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever. (Ps. 73) God is glorified when we look to him, humble ourselves before him and trust that he is our good provider, our Jehovah-Jirah.

"God is enough. God is glorified when we are satisfied with him in the midst of loss." -John Piper

*disclaimer-While I love what Mr. Piper has to say on this subject, I do not agree with all of his theology. This goes for most anything I post. I post what I agree with, so please do not assume that the portion I do agree with means agreement in full. Thanks.

Born Alive

We are a nation deserving of judgment for many reasons. Abortion is one of those reasons and most definitely not the least of them.May God have mercy on these defenseless children!

God's Girl - Abortion Survivor, Gianna Jessen

In case none of you get a chance to read Stacey McDonald's blog (listed on my sidebar), I am going to post these most amazing videos about an abortion survivor. That God would give me a voice to speak like this brave woman. That I would know what to say and how to say it and shrink from the fear of man that plagues me. Gianna Jessen has little to no fear of man because her fear/love of God is so great! May I be more concerned with stepping on God's toes, so to speak, than mans especially in this "save a whale, save a puppy, kill a baby" wretched culture that we live in!
I think we as Christians tend to be such a 'loving' bunch of people that we are afraid to love the way Christ did by speaking the truth and bringing the gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ, to world. If we are his disciples, then we are to follow him and live as Christ lived. What a challenge and what a pleasure to hated for Christ's sake. This is our cross and may we bear it gently, meekly, humbly and yet boldly on his behalf. May we not be afraid to bear testimony to the work of Christ all around us. And may you be as blessed as I was/am by this woman's amazing testimony.
