Your Most Basic Need

What You Need This Christmas

This time of year, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the joy of gift-giving and receiving. We must train ourselves to slow down and recognize the greatest need we have is met in Christ’s coming.

In “The Joy of Christmas,” John Piper says:

The most basic need we have is peace with God. This is foundational to all our pursuits of peace. If we don’t go here first, all other experiences of peace will be superficial and temporary.
