join God’s global purpose


God is pursuing with omnipotent passion a worldwide purpose of gathering joyful worshipers for himself from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. He has an inexhaustible enthusiasm for the supremacy of his name among the nations. Therefore, let us bring our affections into line with his, and, for the sake of his name, let us renounce the quest for worldly comforts,and join his global purpose. If we do this, God’s omnipotent commitment to his name will be over us like a banner and we will not lose, in spite of many tribulations.

Let the Nations Be Glad, John Piper, quoted in

Loving God with All You’ve Got, p. 154 Sunder Krishnan
