Do Not Be Heaven-Centered

Christ did not die to forgive sinners who go on treasuring anything above seeing and savoring God. And people who would be happy in heaven if Christ were not there, will not be there. -John Piper, God is the Gospel

We realize that we are saved not just to be forgiven of our sins or to be assured of our eternity in heaven, but we are saved to know God. -David Platt, Radical

Heaven is not a place for those who are afraid of hell; it’s a place for those who love God. -Matt Chandler, The Explicit Gospel
