"Faith in Future Grace...

satisfies us with the joy set before us" (338).  John Piper discusses throughout his book, Future Grace, the idea of what it means to actually LIVE daily life as Christians with the foundational understanding that "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him". 
The challenge is not merely to pursue righteousness, but to prefer righteousness.  The challenge is to get up in the morning and prayerfully meditate on the Scriptures as the main place where we see the gospel of the glory of Christ. 
An internal preference manifests in external pursuit which comes from the gospel of the glory of Christ.  My source of power to meet that challenge and my motivation is found in the Living Word and being saturated in the Word of Scripture about him! 

Technology Blips (user error)

Ooops! User Error!

So, knowing I was going to have a busy couple of months, I took a few late nights to write several blog posts for future days as scheduled postings.  Well, I have a ton of drafts that should have been posted automatically while I was away.  I am guessing that when you edit a scheduled post it changes the status back to draft-it's the only thing I can figure out, and I have generally found that any technology blips are usually user error!

Here is a good lesson!  Watchful awareness is better than assumptions based on what should be happening :-) I will attempt to reschedule my drafts to publish over the next month!
