The Reason we exist

 

 The Chief end of man is to Glorify God and enjoy Him forever' (shorter catechism).
 

For a Christian the answer is 'For God's Glory'. Let me explain. God is absolutely pure and perfect in every way, otherwise He would not be God. When someone on earth does well and is good at what they do or have done..then we rightly recognise this by affirming them a degree of thanks and praise for their charactor/efforts.  

Now..God is perfect and does all things perfectly so it is His right to be praised for this...in fact if God refused this praise He would deny Himself,for perfection demands admiration and praise. God is not being selfish by wanting everyone to praise Him and 'glorify' Him, but He is simply being true to Himself. He cannot deny Himself.

God is also all Wise and wisdom is the right use of knowledge. God's knowledge tells Him He is perfect so His wisdom operates on that premise.

 So when God works all things in this world by operating His wisdom expressed in His providence,He is working to one great end which is His Glorification - that all men everywhere should glorify Him, which is His chief desire and our chief end in life.

The creation displays and magnifies His glory. Christians show His glory in redemption and the unconverted, who reject His love in Christ will glorify God's perfect justice and Satan and the rebellious Angels will also glorify God when He excerises His perfect justice and judgement in their condemnation.

So in all God will be glorified and His perfection will be acknowledged.

That is reason why we are here...it is for the GLORY OF GOD.

The Future Hope for the Gospel 

  

 

As man fell into sin by listening to and believing the word of satan and ever since that has been the situation. The gospel is the Word of God through the living Logos, Christ. By believing the gospel, the Word of God, man is re-instated.

The story of the world is the story of the Word. The Gospel, when believed turns around the work of satan. It seems therefore right to say that the triumph of the gospel is what we should look for - that the fulfillment of the prophecies of Isaiah and the psalms that all the world will come to worship Him is a song of triumph.

The best is yet to be. God will be glorified as He works all things to that end in defeating the work of satan on Earth, reversing the effects of the fall. So we have the command of our Risen Lord

 ' All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age' Matthew 28v19/20
