Quote of the Day

God plans that there be a long history of redemption and a long battle in every individual’s life, because in that battle certain elements of his glory, patience, wisdom, love, kindness, wrath, and justice are displayed in ways they would not be displayed if he redeemed things instantaneously. — John Piper

I’ve been asked before, “If God is really sovereign over all and controls everything, why put us through all this? Why not just stop sin from ever happening and let us all be happy in Heaven?” I think the quote above is a good answer for that.
