God is NOT a kill joy

God doesn’t forbid sin, such as sexual sin because he is a killjoy, but because he opposes what kills joy.  (Courtesy John Piper tweet.  We seem to think that God is like a strict parent, well he sort of is, but he’s not trying to stop us from having fun.  It’s quite the opposite, in fact. God knows that we will have a funner time doing things his way, because that’s the original way things were intended to be done.   We have this tendency to take things that God made to be wonderful things and we try to make it something that it’s not.  It’s because we want things our way, but we need to remember we didn’t create the things we have that are meant to connect on a deeper level with God.   This reminds me an experiment gone wrong, and how the creation turns it’s back on the creator.  Sounds familiar and relatable, doesn’t it?
