John Piper on Fighting for Joy

This is taken from the e-book edition of John Piper's book When I Don't Desire God: How to Fight for Joy chapter 6:

"And here in the cross is where every enemy of joy is overcome: divine wrath, as he becomes the curse for us; real guilt, as he becomes forgiveness for us; lawbreaking, as he becomes righteousness for us; estrangement from God, as he becomes reconciliation for us; slavery to satan, as he becomes redemption for us; bondage to sin, as he becomes liberation for us; pangs of conscience, as he becomes cleansing for us; death, as he becomes the resurrection for us; hell, as he becomes eternal life for us." (emphasis added) (When I Don't Desire God: How to Fight for Joy by John Piper ©2004 by Desiring God Foundation and published by Crossway.)

How's your joy? Are you fighting for it?
