Joy in Jesus Smites Human Morality

A few weeks ago I was struck by a quote written by Marvin Olasky:

Moralism apart from Christ is idolatry; Priests used hyssop to spray the blood of sacrifices on the people in Moses' time, and authenticity today is bound up in the realization that payment for sin required the shedding of Christ's blood. (from "2010 Vision" in World Magazine - January 16, 2010)
As I pondered over these words since that time, I recently found the depths of what I believe Olasky meant as I watched John Piper's message from the recent Bethlehem Pastor's Conference (see clip below).
