We at times should pause and let these pieces rest upon us with the weight that they have. The gospel is about God. It’s God’s gospel. God is eternal. God is infinite. God is glorious. God is the reality in the universe. And he has a Son, who has always existed, who has never come into being but has always been eternally begotten by the Father’s imaging-forth of himself. These magnificent, unspeakably great, weighty realities are in the gospel. We must let it rest upon us, lest we become a trivial people, a flippant people.

John Piper
