“I am pleading that in all your thinking you seek to see and savor the Treasure. If thinking has the reputation of being only emotionless logic, all will be in vain. God did not give us minds as ends in themselves. The mind provides the kindling for the fires of the heart. Theology serves doxology. Reflection serves affection. Contemplation serves exultation. Together they glorify Christ to the full.” — John Piper

“The time has come to get out of the chair of theoretical reflection about Christ and the Christian life and press on toward the goal.” — Walter Hansen

  1. Think about the promise.
