The critical question

I have been reading Crazy Love by Francis Chan and it has been rocking me for the last few days. When it comes to loving Christ, Francis quotes John Piper from his book God Is The Gospel and here it is:

The critical question for our generation and for every generation is this: If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with heaven, if Christ was not there?

No matter who you are and what you do, as a christian this is a question that you will have to give an honest answer to yourself. You might be surprised at the answer yourself! This has definitely caused me to evaluate my life and love for Christ.

What about you?
