true

“God would have to transform my heart to do what a heart cannot make itself do, namely, want what it ought to want. Only God can make the depraved heart desire God.”
– John Piper (When I Don’t Desire God)

We are all wretched hearts
Guilty of greed
Slaves to shortsightedness.

It takes God to love God.
