Book Summary of Desiring God by John Piper


We wonder to ourselves, Why am I here? Why did God save me? All of life is for the glory of God (1 Co. 10:31). “The chief end of man is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever.” (p. 18, emphasis in original, originally from the Westminster Shorter Catechism).

As God’s children, we bring Him the most glory when we have supreme joy in Him. Every area of life is an opportunity for us to be satisfied in God and bring glory to Him: prayer, worship, and every other aspect of life. 

Joy in God is not just an add-on to the Christian life, it is the Christian life. Without joy we are living a sub-Christian life and will not bring God the glory He immensely deserves.
