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
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!

Biblical Submission: Week 3 Part 1

>> Sunday, February 21, 2010

The difference between Submission and Obedience is something I've never really thought about before. So I appreciate Sunny's perspective on this.

Its all about the heart! What is my heart's attitude toward my husband? Am I willing to adapt myself to him? That would be me yielding to him submissively, according to the definition of submission. Am I willing to change my wants and desires for his sake, in order to show respect and honor to him? And changing my wants and desires to line up with his wants and desires!! That would be true yielding and adapting, which would definitely take a good, honest relationship!!

Obedience, on the other hand, requires "submission" without having to like it!! I really don't need to yield or adapt myself in order to obey.

But, I would like to say that, in order to keep a relationship with my Heavenly Father, I must submit to HIM and OBEY HIM. So, obedience does require some sort of relationship experience. I obey the Lord because I love Him and want to please Him. I want to yield and adapt myself to Him, which is submission! So, my opinion is that submission and obedience are so closely related and it all depends on the heart!!!

Until next time... Keep Pursuing Him!!!
