For Your Joy

From a pamphlet of Desiring God -

I have heard it said, 'God didn't die for frogs. So he was responding to our value as humans.' This turns grace on its head. We are worse off than frogs. They have not sinned. They have not rebelled and treated God with the contempt of being inconsequential in our lives. God did not have to die for frogs. They aren't bad enough. We are. Our debt is so great only divine sacrifice can pay it.
John Piper

The perspective is refreshing. That God died for us based on who He is, rather than who we are.

Oh and hi again. I'm around :).
