[quote]Question 1: What is the chief and highest end of man?
Answer: Man’s chief and highest end is to glorify God, and fully to enjoy him forever.[/quote]I couldn’t possibly agree more. The object of my life is to love what God loves and hate what He hates. To be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, according to the scriptures so as to live the privilege of being an instrument of His glory in the earth. Romans 12:1-2 (NASB) [quote]1-Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2-And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. [/quote]That is my journey and my destination. To give all that I am and all that I have into His hands so that maybe I be used by Him to call and or edify fellow “vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory,.”(Romans 9) In so doing I fully expect to be hated and reviled by the multitudes of “vessels of wrath prepared for destruction?”. (again Romans 9)
In other words to be a Christian. A word that has lost all meaning in our modern world with it’s apostate, corrupt and polluted church. Full of worldliness, immorality and heresy to the point where many pagans actually appear more Christian than those calling themselves by His name. I say with Job,“though He slay me I will serve Him” and with Paul, “Christ will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. <<<>>> for me to live IS Christ and to die is gain”. (Philippians 1)
