Would You Be Happy in Heaven If Christ Were Not There

I normally don’t just reprint quotes, but this one by John Piper from God is the Gospel is so good I couldn’t resist….

John writes, “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 were not there?”

I’ll admit I paused to think about this question….and I have my answer….no.  But what does it say about someone’s relationship with Christ if they answer “yes” to this question?
