When I Don't Desire God by John Piper
Does the command to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind really obligate us to enjoy God above all things? Joy and delight are emotions after all, so isn't such love simply a decision of the will, not a feeling?
According to John Piper, in this companion to the When I Don't Desire God DVD, emotions are commanded everywhere in Scripture. They're not just instructions to think a certain way but to feel a certain way. And though we don't have complete control of our emotions, eternity hangs on the presence of proper affections for God. Therefore, the fight for joy is not optional. It is essential.
