Our Chief End

“The chief end which the Lord proposes to Himself in all His works is the glory of His infinite name, the honor of His beloved Son and His blessed Spirit, the advancement of the Redeemer’s kingdom, the overthrow of Satan’s kingdom, and in all the praise of the glory of His grace.  To live unto God, then, is to make these the chief end of all our thoughts, words, and works.”

-John Colquhoun, From his Treatise on the Law and the Gospel,P.236
