Not satisfied wih Him?

"...because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people— the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel..." -Colossians 1:4-5

"Sin is what you do when your heart is not satisfied with God.  No one sins out of duty.  We sin because it holds out some promises of happiness.  That promise enslaves us until we believe that God is more to be desired than life itself (Psalm 63:6).  Which means that the power of sin's promise is broken by the power of God's.  All that God promises to be for us in Jesus stands over against what sin promises to be for us without Him.  This great prospect of the glory of God is what I call future grace.  Being satisfied with that is what I call faith."  -John Piper

A resounding AMEN!

A blessed Thursday to you all! :)
