Treasure #3 Piper's Definition of Grace


Over the last forty (40) years I have written a number of quotes, comments, pithy sayings, and poems in the fly-leafs of my bibles. Each Tuesday I am going to share those various entries from my bibles with you. I hope they will be as much of blessing to you as they have been to me. Sometimes I will be able to give credit where credit is due and sometimes I won’t be able to credit the source. I apologize for this to each one who contributed these gems over the last forty (40) years.


Today’s Treasure: 

Piper’s Definition of Grace

Grace – is the pleasure of God, to magnify the worth of God by giving sinners the right and the power to delight in God, without obscuring the glory of God! (John Piper)

I love this one. While I've probably heard it in a few different places, I think I read it in "The Pleasures of God" not too long ago. Great one!!!
