3 “We are a singing people. And there is a reason for this. The reality of God and Christ and creation and salvation and heaven and hell are simply too great for mere speaking; they must also be sung. This means that the reality of God and his work is so great that we are not merely to think truly about it, but also feel duly about it. Think truly and feel duly -that is, feel with the kind and depth and intensity of emotion that is appropriate to the reality that is truly known.”

4 “If we think truly and do not feel duly, at best we render to God half the honor he is due. And if we feel strongly (I do not say ‘duly’ because I think it is impossible to feel duly without thinking truly) - if we feel strongly, but do not think truly, we render to him even less than half the honor he is due.” -John Piper “If we think truly and do not feel duly, at best we render to God half the honor he is due. And if we feel strongly (I do not say ‘duly’ because I think it is impossible to feel duly without thinking truly) - if we feel strongly, but do not think truly, we render to him even less than half the honor he is due.” -John Piper
