Wise Words About Seeing

“…the climax of that prayer came with these words, ‘Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, may be with Me where I am, to see My glory that You have given Me because you loved Me before the foundation of the world’ (Jn. 17:24). Why would the most loving man who ever lived, at the most loving hour of His life, pray that we would be able to spend eternity seeing His glory?  The answer is not hard: this will satisfy our hearts and glorify His worth. That is what it means to be loved by Christ.”
-John Piper from his book When I Don’t Desire God: How to Fight for Joy, pg. 67
