This morning, I discovered a blog update by John Piper and broke down in tears. Events like these make me tremble at the greatness of Piper’s ministry. I tremble because it is a sobering reminder that there is a price to greatness. The servants of God whom we admire most are esteemed in large part because they have shown by example what it is like to pass through the valley of the shadow of death and still not be overtaken by evil. Keep the Piper family in your prayers.
