Do What You Wanna Wanna Do


When the day comes that only righteousness pleases you, on that day you may do as you please — with no regrets.

John Piper

Love God and do whatever you please: for the soul trained in love to God will do nothing to offend the One who is Beloved.

Augustine of Hippo (source unknown, though someone on the Interweb said, “I think it was from his homilies on John. Try Works VII, Chapter 8.”)


Loving God Is the Way to Feeling Loved


The acid test of biblical God-centeredness—and faithfulness to the gospel—is this: Do you feel more loved because God makes much of you, or because, at the cost of his Son, he enables you to enjoy making much of him forever?

John Piper, God Is the Gospel, p. 11
