Monday Reminders – The Chief End Of Man

I will attribute this quote to my pastor from his sermon yesterday, since that’s where I heard it.

Such a beautiful, and simple reminder, especially as we head into the Christmas season. It’s all about God.

If your understanding of God, His Ways, His Word, and His World doesn’t lead you to glorify God, then your understanding is wrong (either completely or partially).

Even more importantly, the glory belongs to God alone. If any of that glory is attributed to man or nature, it’s in the wrong place. Nothing man does and nothing that happens in nature is outside of God’s control, plan, and purpose. What is that purpose? His own glory!

Romans 11:33-36
“Oh, the depth of the riches and the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!
‘For who has known the mind of the Lord,
Or who has been his counselor?’
‘Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?’
For from him and through him and yo him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.”

 

Soli Deo Gloria!
