image In a sermon he preached in January at the Passion 2010 Conference in Atlanta, GA, John Piper addressed the claim that Jesus is an egomaniac because of his call to worship Him.  He said:

Here is the end of the matter: God is the one being in the universe for whom self-exaltation is not the act of a needy ego, but an act of infinite giving. The reason God seeks our praise is not because he won’t be fully God until he gets it, but that we won’t be happy until we give it.

This is not arrogance. This is grace.

This is not egomania. This is love.
