“When we are converted through faith in Christ, what we see with the eyes of our hearts is ‘the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God’ (2 Corinthians 4:4).
“The Gospel is the Good News of the Glory of Christ.”
The Gospel is the good news of all-conquering beauty. Or to say it the way Paul does, it is the good news of the ‘the glory of Christ.’ When we embrace Christ, we embrace God. We see and savor God’s glory. There is no savoring of God’s glory if we do not see it in Christ. This is the only window through which a sinner may see the face of God and not be incinerated.”
John Piper, Don’t Waste Your Life (Pamphlet)
