Pastor to Fellow Pastor in Crisis

"We do Christ wrong when our pursuit of others feels like we are mainly angry at how they let us down or broke the rules. They need to see in us a resting in the gospel so that it looks better than what they have. It is an irony. To win those who are breaking our heart, we must strive to enjoy the great heart-sustainer more than ever."

John Piper's personal email to Mark Dever quoted in For the Fame of God's Name, 462
