John Piper Quote: “Being infinite, God is inexhaustibly interesting. It is therefore impossible that God be boring.”
John Piper Quote: “Preaching is the pastor’s main work, and preaching is heart work, not just mental work.”
John Piper Quote: “Evangelicals are distraught over the state of America because they have not been taught that we’re aliens here.”
John Piper Quote: “Apathy is passionless living. It is sitting in front of the television night after night and living your life from one moment of entertainment to the next. It is the inability to be shocked into action by the steady-state lostness and suffering of the world. It is the emptiness that comes from thinking of godliness as the avoidance of doing bad things instead of the aggressive pursuit of doing good things.”
John Piper Quote: “It’s amazing how many introverts go into the ministry. It’s amazing how many people go into the ministry who don’t really like to be with people.”
John Piper Quote: “I see no thread running through my work; I simply get on with my life and my painting.”
John Piper Quote: “Our concern with truth is simply an echo of our concern with God .”

John Piper Quote: “We are more than a collection of appetites – we are of God.”

John Piper Quote: “No one will be able to rise to the magnificence of the missionary cause who does not feel the magnificence of Christ.”
John Piper Quote: “Some of us are afraid of getting too emotional when we sing. But the problem isn’t emotions. It’s emotionalism. Emotionalism pursues feelings as ends in themselves. It’s wanting to feel something with no regard for how that feeling is produced or its ultimate purpose.”
John Piper Quote: “Do you love the cross because it makes much of you? Or do you love it because it enables you to enjoy and eternity of making much of God?”
John Piper Quote: “God is not worshiped where He is not treasured and enjoyed.”
John Piper Quote: “Desire for and delight in God’s Word are inseparable.”
John Piper Quote: “Indeed the devil thinks more true thoughts about God in one day than a saint does in a lifetime, and God is not honored by it. The problem with the devil is not his theology, but his desires. Our chief end is to glorify God, the great Object. We do so most fully when we treasure him, desire him, delight in him so supremely that we let goods and kindred go and display his love to the poor and the lost.”
John Piper Quote: “When a sinful person meets the holy God in Christ, what he hears is Yes. God, do you love me? Yes. Will you forgive me? Yes. Will you accept me? Yes. Will you help me change? Yes. Will you give me power to serve you? Yes. Will you keep me? Yes. Will you show me your glory? Yes.”
John Piper Quote: “Which means, therefore, that our Bible reading is never just for seeing, never just for learning and doctrine. It is not even just for savoring, if that savoring is thought of in a private way that leaves us unchanged in our relationship with others. No. We read the Bible – we always read the Bible – for the kind of seeing and savoring Christ that transforms us into his likeness.”
John Piper Quote: “Therefore we should pray for each other the way Jesus prays for us in John 17:17 – “Sanctify them in the truth; thy Word is truth.”
John Piper Quote: “Little hearts, little souls give little lusts big power. Big hearts give little lusts little power.”
John Piper Quote: “My feelings are not God. God is God. My feelings do not define truth. God’s word defines truth. My feelings are echoes and responses to what my mind perceives. And sometimes – many times – my feelings are out of sync with the truth. When that happens – and it happens every day in some measure – I try not to bend the truth to justify my imperfect feelings, but rather, I plead with God: Purify my perceptions of your truth and transform my feelings so that they are in sync with the truth.”
John Piper Quote: “Don’t leave Christmas in the abstract. Your sin. Your conflict with the Devil. Your victory. He came for this.”
John Piper Quote: “Cancer does not win if we die. It wins if we fail to cherish Christ.”
John Piper Quote: “When this age is over, and the countless millions of the redeemed fall on their faces before the throne of God, missions will be no more. It is a temporary necessity. But worship abides forever. Worship, therefore, is the fuel and the goal of missions.8.”
John Piper Quote: “May the pulpits of the land ring with exposition of the Word of God and exultation in the God of the Word.”
John Piper Quote: “When everything in life is stripped away except God, and we trust him more because of it, this is gain, and he is glorified.”
John Piper Quote: “God made us alive and secured us in Christ so that he could make us the beneficiaries of everlasting kindness from infinite riches of grace. This is not because we are worthy. Quite the contrary, it is to show the infinite measure of his worth.”
John Piper Quote: “So I arrive at this definition of gratitude. Gratitude is a species of joy which arises in your heart in response to the goodwill of someone who does or tries to do you a favor.”
John Piper Quote: “Therefore, at the heart of the meaning of work is creativity. If you are God, your work is to create out of nothing. If you are not God, but like God – that is, if you are human – your work is to take what God has made and shape it and use it to make him look great.”
John Piper Quote: “We desire the wrong things, and we desire right things in the wrong way. And both are deadly – like eating pleasant poison.”
John Piper Quote: “A godly life is lived out of an astonished heart – a heart that is astonished at grace.”
John Piper Quote: “Don’t make peace with the sin in your life.”
John Piper Quote: “The key to endurance in the cause of self-sacrificing love is not heroic willpower, but deep, unshakable confidence that the joy we have tasted in fellowship with Christ will not disappoint us in death.”
John Piper Quote: “If you hold a grudge, you doubt the Judge.”
John Piper Quote: “Life is too precious to squander on trivial things. Grant us, Lord, the unswerving resolve to pray and live with David Brainerd’s urgency: “Oh, that I might never loiter on my heavenly journey!”
John Piper Quote: “He has made me wary of chronological snobbery. That is, he showed me that newness is no virtue and oldness is no vice. Truth and beauty and goodness are not determined by when they exist. Nothing is inferior for being old, and nothing is valuable for being modern. This has freed me from the tyranny of novelty and opened for me the wisdom of the ages.”
John Piper Quote: “Christmas split history. Foretastes of the future abound. Drink deeply on what he achieved for us. And be filled with hope for all that is coming.”
John Piper Quote: “So the question we need to ask today is this: if the teaching in our church was limited to the songs that we sing, how well taught would we be? How well would we know God? We should make it our aim not only to preach the whole counsel of God but to sing it, as well.”
John Piper Quote: “The one thing God is doing in all of redemptive history is to show forth his mercy in such a way that the greatest number of people will throughout eternity delight in him with all their heart, strength, and mind.”
John Piper Quote: “He loved us to the uttermost. And let us be so moved by this love that it becomes our own.”
John Piper Quote: “Make the mule of your tongue serve the mercy of your heart.”
John Piper Quote: “The dismembering of a human being routinely in 30 minutes on an outpatient bases – or any other way – is barbaric. Four blocks from our church all year long – like churches within smelling distance of Auschwitz or Dachau or Buchenwald.”
John Piper Quote: “When something drops into your life that seems to threaten your future, remember this: the first shockwaves of the bomb are not sin. The real danger is yielding to them. Giving in. Putting up no spiritual fight. And the root of that surrender is unbelief – a failure to fight for faith in future grace. A failure to cherish all that God promises to be for us in Jesus.”
John Piper Quote: “Authenticity begins when you start by admitting that you are inauthentic.”
John Piper Quote: “We ascribe to God. We don’t add to Him.”
John Piper Quote: “Christmas cut history in two ages, the Age of Promise, and the Age of Fulfillment.”
John Piper Quote: “He may be doing it for you in this Advent season – graciously and tenderly frustrating you with life that is not centered on Christ and filling you with longings and desires that can’t find their satisfaction in what this world offers, but only in the God-man. What a Christmas gift that might be! Let all your frustrations with this world throw you onto the Word of God. It will become sweet – like walking into paradise.”
