Anniversary of the Blog!

Sometime ago, at the beginning of this month, was the one year anniversary of this blog! I want to say that it's sad that I am posting about it so late, but I want to start posting more regularly. But for now I just want to post up one on the great quotes that we have talked about before and some of the other quotes from the same book.

"Only one life,
'Twill soon be passed;
Only what's done
for Christ will Last."
"He is most Glorified in us
When we are most satisfied
in Him."
"(But) Suffering with Jesus on the Calvary road
of love is not merely the result of magnifying Christ;
It is also the Means."
"What you love determines what you feel shame about.
If you love for men to make much of you, you will
feel shame when they don't. But if you love for men
to make much of Christ, then you will feel shame
if he is belittled on your account."
"Death is a threat to the degree that it frustrates
your main goals... Paul treasured Christ most, and his goal
was to magnify Christ. And he saw death not as a frustration
of that goal but as an occasion for its fulfillment"
"The way we die reveals the worth of Christ on our hearts."
And Last "The world is not impressed when Christians get rich
and say thanks to God. They are impressed when God is so satisfying
that we give our riches away for Christ's sake and count is gain."
P.S. The book these quotes come from is a book by John Piper called "Don't Waste Your Life"
Read it!
All For His Son's Glory,

Thanks for posting Kole!

Hey, listening to you guys made me want to learn While you Were Sleeping for the Piano, and one of my Casting Crowns books has that song in it! :) So I am learning it, and I think Rachel will try to learn the duet part for it.
