Scripture: Luke 2:14
Q: What is the chief end of man?
A: Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.
The Westminster Shorter Catechism
“No single drawing, painting, photograph, or verbal description could ever capture glory. Glory isn’t so much a thing as it is a description of a thing. Glory isn’t a part of God; it’s all that God is. Every aspect of who God is and every part of what God does is glorious. But even that’s not enough of a description. Not only is he glorious in every way, but his very glory is glorious!”
Paul Tripp, “The Doctrine of Glory”
“Dear Abba, It’s not hard for me to accept You as Father and Savior and Lord and Master. But when it comes to Friend, it’s just not as easy. It oughta be, but it’s not. The thought that You would want to spend time with me and dine with me and walk with me and be my Friend? That You, the Lord of Glory, would want to be the guest of me, a sinner? That leaves me undone. Simply undone. So I finish this day with that thought being the final one for the day—You, Jesus, want to be my Friend.”
Brennan Manning, Dear Abba
