John Piper on the ULTIMATE Benefit of the Gospel!

"Would it not be better to say that the ultimate benefit of the Gospel, which makes all its other parts good news, is neither being nor seeing but delighting and displaying - that is delighting in and displaying "the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ"? In other words, is it not the case that we behold and thus become ... and that we become and thus behold (Matthew 5:8, 2 Cor 4:6) in order that ultimately we might delight in and display God? Becoming and beholding are a means to the end of delighting and displaying".

John Piper - "God is the Gospel" - Crossway Books, Illnois (2005) - (p160).
