Exchange at the Bottom

January 5, 2011

At the Passion 2011 conference in Atlanta, John Piper delivered a powerful message about the bottom of our joy.

Here are just a few quotes:

“Do you feel more loved by God when he makes much of you or do you feel more loved by God when he frees you and enables you to make much of Christ.”

“What is at the bottom of your joy? Exchange self as the bottom of your joy with Christ.”

“Do you enjoy worshiping God because at the bottom you enjoy him making much of you. that is idolatry of the worst kind.”

“To be born again, regenerate, is an exchange of self as your joy with Christ as the new bottom.”
