Seeking Alternatives

.

“Sin is what you do when you’re not happy with God.” 1

–John Piper, Pastor, Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, MN.

Anytime we try to substitute God’s methods and ways with our own we sin. God doesn’t want to dominate our lives and force His agenda upon us, He just wants us to be happy! He holds the “trademark” on happiness. He invented it!

All the misery in the world can be traced back to man’s efforts to try and find happiness apart from God. Every such attempt ends in heartache, failure and death.
