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!

Thankful Thursday~February 25th, 2010

>> Thursday, February 25, 2010

It's nice to get back in to the habit of Thankfulness! Honoring God is my main goal in life, so I desire to magnify Him with Praise and Thanksgiving.

First, I am thankful, of course, for my Savior and Lord for rescuing me from the bondage of sin. He is teaching me so much about living a holy life for Him. I am grateful for His constant presence and my constant growing!!

Second, I am thankful for my loving Grandad, who had blessed me in so many ways in my childhood years, and now in his death, he has blessed me even more. As being a beneficiary in his life insurance, he has provided a way for my family to be able to purchase a new heating and cooling unit. If it hadn't been for the money from his insurance, we would not have been able to purchase a new unit. We have been desperate for a new unit, but no way to buy one. So, now we have a new one, praise God! Now we will hopefully have bills that are affordable each month, thanks to God and my Grandaddy.

Thirdly, I'm thankful that my husband is able to install the new unit, himself. He is so knowledgeable about things like this, that it makes it easier on us not having to hire someone else to do the job. Thank you, hubby!!

Fourthly, I am thankful for my kids and my new baby on the way. The pregnancy is going pretty well right now, so I'm thankful for that!!

Lastly... (not really), I am thankful for my blog which gives me a way to reach out and be a light to someone out there. I am hopeful that my words will bless someone and honor my Lord. May I encourage someone to pursue holiness and righteousness throughout their days through my struggles and triumphs!!

Blessings to all of His Saints out there,
Saint Shellie
