The Glory of Christ


“The design of the cross is the glory of Christ, The aim of God in the cross is that Christ would be honored. When Paul says in Galatians 6:14, “Far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,” he is saying that God’s will is that the cross always be magnified- that Christ crucified always be our boast and exultation and joy and praise- that Christ get glory and thanks and honor for every good thing in  our lives and every bad thing that God turns for good.”

-John Piper, Don’t Waste Your Life
