To What End?

To what end do we live and die? If it be for our own glory, what a pity, for we have none for ourselves, and merit none from Christ. We are but creatures. And He is creator of ALL!

To what end then do we live and die?
If it be for Christ, and His glory, through faith in His name, then what a gift! For if He is lifted up so shall He raise us up in the last day with Him.

May all of life, all that you commit to, all that you strain for, and all that controls you, be all wrapped up in Him, His glory, His fame, His cross, His pleasure, His humility, His character, His will, and His perfect love; For He indeed is all in all, and everything in between.  He is all of this so that in your knowing Him, you might praise the glory of His grace!

“In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory.”
(Ephesians 1:11-12 ESV)

“O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.”
(Psalm 8:1 ESV)
