If all the universe and everything in it exists by the design of an infinite, personal God,
to make his manifold glory known
and loved,then to treat any subject
without reference to God's glory
is not scholarship but insurrection.
—John Piper, God's Passion for His Glory, p. 43.

(back to Mike)
And there, ladies & gents, is why we who claim to be followers of Christ must give some serious thought & prayer to the totality of our lives.

Our jobs...our family life...our hobbies...our travels...our do otherwise is, well, insurrection, to use Piper's well-placed word.

Let us not be guilty of insurrection this week!
