I wish I had time to reflect and post on all of these. some comments for now...

One thing I liked that Piper said in his talk (paraphrase): “There are no more ‘so that’s’ after joy.” In other words, joy is never a means to an end. Joy is the end. It is true that good works overflow from joy [in God] but that doesn’t mean we seek to be joyful so that we can do good works. The chief end of man is to glorify God by enjoying him forever as Piper would say. We seek to find our joy in God. And when we do, we find that holy living and Christ-likeness are the natural qualities of this kind of life.

Now that seems to me the right way to go about it. No use making the good works and holy living the end. If we do that we’ll never be acting for the right reasons and we’ll never be happy (have joy). But if we find our joy in God first then the good works will be the easy (and natural and fun) part.

Good Will, great synopsis; i think you really hit the heart of piper's message. i appreciate you sharing that.

EMA - This one was held in Minneapolis, MN. This was the first Desiring God conference I was able to make it out to, and I highly recommend attending next year if you are at all able.
