"The proper understanding of everything in life begins with God. No one will understand the necessity of conversion who does not know why God created us. He created us "in His image" so that we would image forth His glory in the world. We were made to be prisms refracting the light of God's glory into all of life. Why God should want to give us a share in shining with His glory is a great mystery. Call it grace or mercy or love -- it is an unspeakable wonder. Once we were not. Then we existed for the glory of God."
- John Piper
"Even every one that is called by My name: for I have created him for My glory,
I have formed him; yea, I have made him."
