Conclusion

The Westminster Shorter Catechism says that the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. There may be a lot in this chapter, and as one who’s given his life to full-time occupational ministry, I know well that there are a lot of details and distractions in fulfilling this purpose of God on the earth. But there’s a simplicity in all of it—to glorify God and enjoy Him forever—that, if we can grasp it, brings a glorious freedom and peace in and of itself.

This isn’t something we have to strive for. It’s not something we have to earn. It’s not even necessarily something we do. But it’s who we are. It’s the choices we make every day that determine our character, our integrity, our impact on the world around us. It’s living life to the fullest and never losing sight of the Giver of Life. Glorify Him. Enjoy Him. It really isn’t rocket science. But sometimes we make it seem that way. What we were created for is more natural to us than we realize, but to come back to our roots, to find our identity once again, we need to get past the distractions, the voices all around us trying to pin us with a different identity (as with every thirty-second TV commercial or online advertisement that flashes in front of our eyes), and we need to once again believe in who God says we are.

We are special. We are enjoyable. We are rulers. We are creators. We are producers. We are responsible and must give account to God for the way we live. And we are made in the very image of God—true sons and daughters of the Most High.
