Go On to Abundant Living

John 10:10—"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” 

John Piper says we all need to be Hedonists—pleasure seekers. Strange counsel from a Christian writer. But Piper is referring to the pleasure of God’s abundant life. God commissioned Moses to lead His covenant people to the Land of Promise, the Land of Abundant Living. True hedonism is leaving the two-bit, low-yield, short-term, never-satisfying, soul-destroying, God-belittling pleasures of the world, like ungodly sex, pursuit of money and power, and allowing God to be your abundance. God promises overflowing spiritual bounty to those who seek Him above all else.

John Piper, Desiring God, Sisters, Oregon: Multnomah, page 23.
