I very nearly stood up and cheered when Pastor John said this more than two years ago. But I think I was crying too hard, with joy:
So my aim in this message is modest and, I think, explosive, if the church really took hold of it and lived it.
The message is that God knits all the children together in their mothers’ wombs, and they are all—all of them of every degree of ability—conceived for the purpose of displaying the glory of God.
John Piper, Born Blind for the Glory of God, preached on January 24, 2010.
That sermon can also be found in this free ebook, Disability and the Sovereign Goodness of God, along with other sermons and some interviews Pastor John and I did last year.
