Happy Developments

John Piper shared an amazing message about pastors giving "Exulted Exposition." In his message, he lamented that much of the popular church movement calls for lightness and slapstick instead of revealing the glory of God. Yet, during the panel discussion, Mark Dever asked Piper if he saw anything that was encouraging. Piper's response:
What we're seeing, in a most remarkable way, are outcroppings of the awakening of the supremacy and glory of God theologically; that is Calvinism. Whitfield said that he hoped that men would have hearts treasuring the doctrines of grace. We are seeing that amazingly. And these outcroppings don't even know each other exists. It's not anybody making it happen. You've got groups in the Northwest, and groups in the Northeast, and groups in the South, and groups all over the place who are coming into the recognition that God is God and it feels right to let Him be so. How that is going to be translated into worship forms, we're maybe on the front edge. I think if theology precedes doxology and ecclesiology, then we are in for some happy developments.
