John Piper gives these 4 purposes God has for history…
- God’s purpose is to be known: “That your way may be known on earth” (v. 2)
- God’s purpose is to be praised: “Let the peoples praise you” (v. 3).
- God’s purpose is to be enjoyed: “Let the nations be glad and sing for joy” (v. 4).
- God’s purpose is to be feared and reverenced: “Let all the peoples of the earth fear him” (v. 7).
Spend some time pondering these… and what they mean for YOUR life!
