The All-Satisfying Object of Beauty

Jonathan Leeman:

John Piper’s always talking about standing in front of the Grand Canyon or the mountains and being drawn outside of oneself in the worship of something majestic. He should attend a U2 concert and he’ll see 50,000 people doing just that. Of course they were worshipping….Bono. Not Jesus. Imagine what that stadium concert will be like. Who will tell them about Jesus?

John Piper - Jesus Is Precious Because We Yearn for Beauty

No wonder everything changes when human eyes are opened to see the glory of Jesus in the gospel, on the pages of scripture. No wonder the Holy Spirit transforms us when we see Him. No wonder we become more human when we see Jesus.
