Faith in Jesus…

This is from John Piper. It’s about satisfying faith in Jesus and what that looks like. God grant us such refreshing faith that quenches our thirsts…

When you have faith in Jesus, you’re satisfied in the glorious deity of Christ.

You’re satisfied in the humble, sinless, virgin-birth humanity of Jesus.

You’re satisfied by the universe-creating, miracle working power of Jesus.

You’re satisfied in the covenant-keeping, law-fulfilling righteousness performing perfection providing obedience of Jesus.

You’re satisfied by the wrath-bearing, justice satisfying, sin-atoning, death of Jesus.

You’re satisfied by the death-defeating, devil-destroying, heaven opening, resurrection of Jesus.

And you’re satisfied by the Sovereign, interceding, ever-present, never leaving us alone triumphant reign of Jesus at His Father’s right hand.
