"God is most glorified in you when you are most satisfied in him in the midst of loss, not prosperity." --John Piper

Found this quote on Jarod Wilson's blog (he was quoting Martin Luther). Read it several times and finally thought I needed to post it on my blog. Not because I want you to read it, but because when I look back at old posts, as I do from time to time, I want to see this again.
The heart of man finds it difficult to believe that so great a treasure as the Holy Ghost is gotten by the mere hearing of faith. The hearer likes to reason like this: Forgiveness of sins, deliverance from death, the gift of the Holy Ghost, everlasting life are grand things. If you want to obtain these priceless benefits, you must engage in correspondingly great efforts. And the devil says, "Amen."
Yeah, I need to be reminded of this from time to time.

Faith is so simple. No wonder that the natural man does not understand it.
