WLC 1 What is the chief and highest end of man? A. Man’s chief and highest end is to glorify God, and fully to enjoy him forever.
Lord, you are my chief and highest end. My reason for being. My purpose for being here.
Of you, and through you, and to you are all things, and yours is the glory forever (Romans 11:36).
Because I am bought with a price, I long to glorify you in my body and spirit (1 Corinthians 6:20), to do all things to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31).
Gracious God, you have purposed, created and redeemed me that I should be to the praise of your glory (Ephesians 1:6, 12, 14).
All the nations, too, were created for your glory, and shall glorify your name. I pray, by your grace, that they would glorify you willingly forever (Psalm 86:9, 12).
O Great God, you are first and most and best. You are my greatest desire and none is your equal (Psalm 73:24-28). There is no enjoyment in this world like the enjoyment in and of you. You are my strength and portion.
By Christ we have been brought into the enjoyment of the glory that you gave to him, the oneness you share with him, and the love that you have for him (John 17:21–23).
O Lord, therefore, you are my portion and inheritance indeed. You show me the way of life. In your presence is fulness of joy. At your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. You are mine, O God, and I am yours, forever (Revelation 21:3–4).
