Enjoying God as an End, Never a Means

Just heard something that I hope I never forget because I believe it could be one of those statements that people describe as "when I heard that it changed the rest of my life."

John Piper gave a talk on distinguishing the Gospel from false gospels and in the end he stressed that the goal of the Gospel is GOD! and nothing else. He went on to say that as preachers we MUST tell people this or....
they will become forgiven TV watchers who will never be able to break free of their idols.
This is a powerful statement. It is easy to be Christian but to not fully enjoy God as an end, rather than a means to something else. May that be increasingly less true of me!
