Seeing and Savoring the Supremacy of Jesus Christ Above All Things – John Piper – Passion 2012
“The Glory of Rescuing Sinners, Not Removing Satan”
There are three books I often give away to non-Christians. But I do hand them out frequently. Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ :. This is a book I literally order by the case. The glory of Jesus Christ is seen in the fact that competing glories are both true in the person of Jesus. The glories of humanity, and the glories of deity.
Now without sin and law to condemn and accuse and oppress us, Satan is a defeated foe. He is disarmed. Christ has triumphed over him, not by putting him out of existence, but by letting him live and watch while millions of saints find forgiveness for their sins and turn their back on Satan because of the greater glory of the grace of Christ. It was a costly triumph. If God had simply terminated Satan, then it would not have been so clear that God is both stronger and infinitely more to be desired than Satan. God wills for His glory to shine forth not only through acts of physical power, but also through acts of moral and spiritual power that display the beauty of His grace with lavish colors.

My prayer is that through that ministry and everything else I do the great glory of our God and Savior Jesus Christ would be magnified as more and more people come to live out the obedience of faith more and more deeply.
We ended last week by seeing that the light at the end of the tunnel, the silver lining on the cloud of suffering is the mystery of Christ in you the Hope of Glory. What is Paul talking about a mystery? First off, there are two kinds of mystery ones that remain hidden and ones that are solved. Imagine picking up a mystery novel and it being the first category. This is not the kind of mystery that Paul is talking about. Egypt gets concerned and makes all the Israelites slaves and is pretty cruel and harsh to the Israelites. When God calls you listen.
Paul, Minnesota, and is the author of more than 30 books. About the Book Seeing and savoring Jesus Christ is a book that teaches us in 13 chapters a simple way of knowing Jesus in his deity and humanity, and this provides to every reader an inspiration for personal growth in his daily devotional, since every chapter starts with some verses of the Bible or quotations and ends with a powerful prayer that contains a practical guide to pray effectively. Furthermore, the language that the author uses is understandable for both believers and unbelievers in order to make the title of the book come true for everybody, as he says When we see Jesus for who he really is, we savor him. That is, we delight in him as true and beautiful and satisfying. That is my goal, because two things flow from such an experience of Jesus Christ: He is honored, and we are freed by joy to walk the narrow way of love. Christ is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.
