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!

Not a Happy Post!!

Today was another day I long to forget. It was one of those days where patience, love, and kindness were not my strong suits. Shamefully, I admit this, knowing that I still have a long way to go!!!

I should have known that today was going to be testy when I read this morning,

A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.

The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, but the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness. Proverbs 15: 1-2

Part of my problem is that I allow my son to push me and push me until I lose my cool with him. Instead of being diligent to discipline in areas where he needs constant attention, I let things slide... until I burst!!

So, part of his problem is me! My lack of diligent discipline. My lack of self-control when I want him to have self-control. My lack of taking heed to myself when I want him to take heed to himself! When will I ever learn????

What a wretch I am! Who will save me from myself?? Thank God, He will, through Jesus Christ!!!

I am a great sinner, and He is a great Savior!!!
