God Gets the Glory


"Let us work hard
but never forget that 
it is not us 
but the grace of God which is with us
(1 Cor. 15:10).

"Let us obey now, as always,
but never forget that 
it is God who works in us 
both the will and the deed
(Phil. 2:13).

Let us spread the gospel far and wide 
and spend ourselves for the sake of the elect
but never venture to speak of anything 
except what Christ has wrought in us
(Rom. 15:18).

In all our serving 
may God be the giver, 
and may God get the glory.

(John Piper, Brothers, We Are Not Professionals)
