John Piper: God Does Make Much Of Us.

via Desiring God

At Passion 2011 in Atlanta, Pastor John gave a message titled “Getting to the Bottom of Your Joy.” In it John clarifies if and how God makes much of us:

“Let it be said loud and clear John Piper does not deny and and never has denied that God makes much of us. The question is ranking—what’s at the bottom of your joy. Where does it finally rest?

Yes, those amazing truths—that God makes much of you—should thrill your soul!  But why? The answer to that question makes all the difference.

If the answer is, “Because I’m at the bottom, and I love to be made much of,” you’re not born again. If the answer is, “Because it reveals more of God and makes me know him, treasure him, love him, be satisfied in him, more than I ever dreamed!” then you are born again.

That’s the difference—what’s at the bottom.

    I have a question for John Piper, actually 2 of them. Are you the John Piper who has and maybe still is involved with Baptist General Conference now going by the name Converge PacWest??? Years ago my husband was on the overseers committee. Question # 2.. Are you related to Don Piper who wrote the book “90 Minutes In Heaven”? I would appreciate it if you could take a minute to answer my questions. We always admired you John Piper for your stand on abortion. Thank you for your time. Marlene Y. Larsen

      Mrs. Larsen,

      This is not John Piper’s website, I was sharing something from his website, the best place for those questions to be answered is at

      As far as I know Dr. Piper is not related to Don Piper, I am not sure about the first question though.
