Random John Piper Quote

Here is a sobering yet, hopeful, quote from John Piper. It comes in response to a question from Justin Taylor over at Between Two Worlds regarding Piper's new book - Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ: The Cost of Bringing the Gospel to the Nations in the Lives of William Tyndale, Adoniram Judson, and John Paton.

"We are too sinful to be left without suffering. And the world is too sinful to see our love unless it comes with suffering. Therefore, for our sake and their sake God appoints tribulation for all who would conquer their own sin and offer salvation to the nations."
