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)

Amazing definition! I will create a Facet of Grace picture with that one.
Thanks for the post!

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!!!
