The glory of God in suffering

Having just finished studying and teaching Romans 8:26-30 and being reminded of God’s purpose for us–conformity to the His Son. Being reminded that God has a plan for good, our good even in difficulty, but that what is good my not be know until eternity.

In light of that context, I was struck by the simplicity, passion and directness of this video by John Piper. I don’t know that I could say it with the boldness he stated.

But God is not made more glorious when things are easy for me. His glory does not change–His goodness does not waiver whether things are going smoothly or I am experiencing difficulty.
