Our Worship Has Shriveled

July 6, 2010

“Our desire for happiness is too weak. We have settled for a home, a family, a few friends, a job, a TV and microwave and Apple II, an occasional night out, a yearly vacation. We have accustomed ourselves to such small, unexciting, short-lived, inadequate pleasure that our capacity for joy has shriveled. And therefore our worship has shriveled.”

– John Piper, Worship: The Feast of Christian Hedonism, September 25, 1983 (read the whole sermon here)
