“One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in His temple.” -Psalm 27:4

Lord, I will obey You simply because You are worthy of it and it is my duty. But don’t let my service to You remain at that level. Show me Your beauty – attract my heart, capture my imagination, so that I find joyful pleasure in serving You. Amen. -Tim Keller via Twitter

The critical question for our generation— and for every generation — is this: If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with heaven, if Christ was not there?  –John Piper, God is the Gospel
