Desiring God - No Ocean Big Enough: The Beauty of God in the World He Made - John Piper
When we look at oceans or mountains, whales or bears, fields or deserts, God wants us to see the beauty, power, and wisdom in his creation and think, “What must God be like!” He wants us to ride the waves he has made into worship, and climb the mountains he built to see more of him.
The sermon clip is from a message John Piper preached on Sunday, February 8, 1987 entitled, “The Pleasure of God in His Creation.” Read or listen to the entire message here.
John Stephen Piper was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to Bill and Ruth Piper January 11, 1946.

His father was an itinerant evangelist, and his mother died in 1974 in a bus accident while visiting Israel.
