Some Reflections after reading portions of Desiring God by John Piper

The very thing that can make us happiest is what God delights in with all His heart and with all His soul, because we were created in God's image. We are to praise God with a sweet echo of His excellence. What is amazing about God is that with all His heart and all His soul, God joins us in the pursuit of our everlasting joy. He joins us in a relationship with Himself. Because He is the ultimate source of infinite joy.

Not everyone is bound to enter Heaven, this is why conversion is so important. "for the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few." (Mt. 7:14)"There are those who are being saved and those who are perishing." (1 Cor. 1:18) This is hard to deal with because we do not like it. We do not want to hear it or deal with the fact that not everyone will be saved. This makes me want to live my life for God even more and evangelize more. I want more to come to know Christ and not perish without Him.
