Fulfilling the Chief End of Man
Have you ever wondered HOW to fulfill the “Chief end of man . . .?”
Think about it – if “the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever,” HOW can we do this?
Two things continue to amaze me:
- We are so cavalier to throw these WHATS around.
- 2. We so seldom then SEARCH for HOW to do them (and the “professionals” rarely tell us how!)
Yet, the Bible again comes through with the answer – with minimal searching.
One word is most closely associated with “giving glory”/glorifying – again, think, what is it? It is something we can actively do rather than passively wait to happen.
Maybe unexpectedly (it shouldn’t be), it is:
Just as happy people are thankful people and thankful people are happy people:
People thankful to God both glorify Him and are happy!
Thankfulness is powerful!
I will praise God’s name in song
and glorify him with thanksgiving. Psalms 69:30
