Man's Chief End: Glorify God & Enjoy Him Forever

How are we doing in fulfilling and living our primary purpose? The chief end to which God has called us?

Q: What is the chief end of man (i.e., man's primary purpose)?
A: Man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.
(I Cor. 10:31; Rom. 11:36; Ps. 73:24-26; Jn. 17:22, 24)

A great treatment on this is Thomas Watson's Man's Chief End, in his work A Body of Divinity (Banner Of Truth, 1984).

See also Thomas Boston's Of Man's Chief End and Happiness.

From the Valley of Vision (Banner of Truth, 1988)
