Piper: God's worldwide purpose

Tuesday, November 1, 2022
    Feast of All Saints
    [The Lord:] “I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.”
    —Acts 9:16 (NIV)
    God is pursuing with omnipotent passion a worldwide purpose of gathering joyful worshipers for Himself from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. He has an inexhaustible enthusiasm for the supremacy of His name among the nations. Therefore, let us bring our affections into line with His, and, for the sake of His name, let us renounce the quest for worldly comforts and join His global purpose. If we do this, God’s omnipotent commitment to His name will be over us like a banner, and we will not lose, in spite of many tribulations.
    ... John S. Piper (b. 1946), Let the Nations Be Glad!, Baker Academic, 2010 (3rd ed.), p. 62 (see the book)
    See also Acts 9:16; John 15:20; 16:2-4; Rom. 8:35-39; 2 Tim. 2:9-10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, align my will with Your own.
