Right thoughts about who God is changes our affections of hope and joy.

Captured beauty by Justine, April 2018

“Jonathan Edwards in his book Religious Affections addresses this very point. John Piper also draws on him when he writes,

“The Scriptures command joy, hope, fear, peace, grief, desire, tenderheartedness, brokenness and contrition, gratitude, lowliness, etc. Therefore Christian Hedonism is not making too much of emotion when it says that being satisfied in God is our calling and duty.”
