Sunday Quote: Exalting God

"God is exalted in our honesty when we look to him and not to our schemes. And when God is exalted in our lives, we discover what we were created to be. No pursuit of self-enhancement without this exaltation of God will succeed. But if we humble ourselves with confidence in God's future grace, and by this faith submit to this command for promise-keeping integrity, then he will exalt us in due time (Luke 18:14). Because to exalt the one who keeps promises by trusting God is to exalt the One trusted." ~ John Piper, A Godward Life , p. 139
