Kim Walker - How He loves us

"God is jealous like a powerful and merciful king who takes a peasant girl from a life of shame, forgives her, marries her, and gives her not the chores of a slave, but the privileges of a wife-a queen. His jealousy does not rise from fear or weakness but from a holy indignation at having His honor and power and mercy scorned by the faithlessness of a fickle spouse." ~John Piper

This quote appeared on my Facebook news feed this morning. It brought the song to mind. Enjoy.

Good song. And I like the Piper quote. I've never read one of his books (but I have one), but have seen him referred to a lot. Have been reading a fair amount of John Ortber, though. He is good, too!

Thanks for the nice comments on teh article about suffering.
