“Jesus Christ is the most important person in the universe. Not more (or less) important than God the Father or God the Spirit, of course. With them, He is equal in worth and beauty and wisdom and justice and love and power. But He is more important than all created persons– whether angels or demons or kings or commanders or scientists or artists or philosophers or athletes or musicians or actors– the ones who live now, or have ever lived, or ever will live. Jesus Christ is supreme.”
–John Piper, Spectacular Sins (Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2008), 53-4.
