Living Fully Satisfied

Pleasure

The Gospel story creates, which is to say re-creates, the prelapsarian garden of Edenic pleasure, and thus Edenic joy.

Jared Wilson, Gospel Deeps

I love this quote from Mr. Wilson. His books Gospel Wakefulness and Gospel Deeps were formative for me and I have revisited them often.

The idea he is conveying is that God through the gospel is putting all things right again. He is restoring us back to the place of pleasure, Eden means pleasure. He is releasing to us the joy of our first love. What level of good news is this?!

The simple, yet profound, idea that God in Christ has fully restored us to the garden of Eden is life-changing.

God-Centered

At each point in the gospel’s design, implementation, application, and forecast, God is at the very center taking the credit and establishing his own centrality. Indeed, we could say that God is himself God-centered, and while the gospel is for our salvation, it is chiefly for God’s own glory.
