Is Jesus an Egomaniac?

This is a talk from John Piper from the recent Passion conference in Atlanta, GA, USA. This I think, while not dealing with a simple topic, is a great talk and well worth the time to listen to it. The basic question is – if God is constantly telling us to praise Him why is He not an egomaniac and how can He be good in doing that?

Something I am firmly convinced of is that not only should we as humans live for God’s glory and His renown but that God lives for His own glory and His own renown. God is truly righteous when He lives for Himself above all other things. These comments can be confusing and seemingly wrong and so please listen to this sermon by John Piper who does a stellar job of explaining it.
