Last weekend was John Piper's last weekend as the Senior Pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church. This was his final message. While I was never a part of this church, I did visit on Easter Sunday, 1999. I was overwhelmed by the passion and joy for the Lord that came from everyone we met; from the worship team to the preaching. I will never forget that visit.
Thank you Dr. Piper for fighting for the joy of God's people. As you leave this post, may your ministry become even more passionate for the glory of God for the good and joy of His people.
