What Is Man's Chief End?

Man's chief end is to glorify God, [a] and to enjoy Him for ever. [b]
[a]. Ps. 86:9; Isa. 60:21; Rom. 11:36; I Cor. 6:20; 10:31; Rev. 4:11
[b]. Ps. 16:5-11; 144:15; Isa. 12:2; Luke 2:10; Phil. 4:4; Rev. 21:3-4
THE WESTMINSTER SHORTER CATECHISM
Every new believer has been set apart by God, separated unto God to be transformed into the likeness of His Son, Jesus Christ. In this sense, every believer is a saint- a person separated from his old sinful way of life and set apart by God to increasingly glorify God as his life is transformed!

A New Day ~ A New Beginning!

>> Tuesday, October 20, 2009


How I love new days! New beginnings, new chances to grow in God's grace. I am reminded of my Savior's love for me when I think on the Cross. What He endured for me to save me from the dominion of sin, to give me the power over sin, and to show my family God's grace in action. My family knows that I am not perfect, but as Paul said in 1 Timothy 1:15, "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost." And John Newton, the writer of the well-loved song, "Amazing Grace", was known to say, "My memory is nearly gone, but I remember two things: that I am a great sinner, and that Christ is a great Savior."* I can say a hearty, "Amen!" No matter how badly I mess up, Christ is always ready to forgive and gracefully bring me back. And I am thankful for a forgiving family! If it weren't for God working in their hearts, and helping them to forgive, as well, I don't know how I could face them. But God's grace shows itself in all of us. What an awesome God we serve!!

Thank you so much for leaving me a comment. I will do my best to reply in a timely manner. Keep in mind that I am a busy, homeschool mom and wife, so please give me grace if I am not able to respond quickly.

Remember that this is a Christian blog, so I will not give any time to rude, inflammatory, or gossipy comments. We can agree to disagree, but only in a loving, Christlike manner.
