I am currently reading Desiring God at the moment, which Bish recommended for me to read about 4 years ago and I have now finally opened the book! I am enjoying it and finding it encouraging/challenging.
I want to share a quote with you:
"When Christ calls us to a new act of obedience that will cost us some temporal pleasure, we call to mind the surpassing value of following Him, and by faith in His proven worth, we forsake the worldly pleasure. The Result?! More Joy! More Faith! Deeper than before. And so we go on from Joy to Joy and Faith to Faith." (John Piper - Desiring God ~ Page 74)
