All about Jesus?

We say it is all about Jesus. We say we live for Jesus, Jesus is everything to us, Jesus is our greatest joy. But really? The fact is, that old self-centredness is so deeply rooted in us that sometimes we even find ourselves following Jesus not because He is the best but because of what is in it for us.
Here is a quote from John Piper I came across the other day.
"If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with heaven, if Christ were not there?"
John Piper
God is the Gospel
Well, what do you think? Could you? Is it really all about Jesus?
