enjoyment is praise

From John Piper, as he explains facets of "Christian hedonism":

"God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.  
It’s not enough to say that praising God is the completion or consummation of enjoying God. In fact, that doesn’t go to the heart of the relationship between God’s glory and our joy. The heart of the matter is this: Enjoying God is the essence of praising God. Enjoying God from the heart is essential to glorifying God from the heart. Where God is not enjoyed as he ought to be, he is not glorified as He ought to be. That’s the essence of the relationship."
