Q. 1. What is the chief end of man?
A. Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.
– Westminster Shorter Catechism

“Even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.”
– Ephesians 1:4-6

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
– Ephesians 2:8-10

“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
– Romans 8:38-39

“We cannot respond to the good news of the gospel until we want Christ, and we cannot want Christ simply by a decision we can take at any moment we choose.  We cannot say to our will, ‘Will, will to belong to the Lord!’  It is beyond our powers to do that.  No one can will the will to will what it will not will!  Only God’s grace can set us free to come to trust in Him.”
– Sinclair Ferguson

“If you are clear in your theology and in your doctrine you will know that no natural man can believe the gospel… So if you expect a natural man to believe the gospel simply because you are putting it to him, you are denying the gospel; you have not understood it yourself.”
– Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“I am not what I ought to be, I am not what I want to be, I am not what I hope to be in another world; but still I am not what I once used to be, and by the grace of God I am what I am.”
– John Newton

“Live for God. Obey the Scriptures. Think of others before yourself. Be holy. Love Jesus. And as you do these things, do whatever else you like, with whomever you like, wherever you like, and you’ll be walking in the will of God.”
– Kevin DeYoung

“The Church is a whore, but she’s my mother.”
– Augustine

“The Gospel is neither religion, nor irreligion. It’s the third way and most people who have rejected Christianity, have rejected an imposter. The Jesus of the Bible is nothing like the Jesus you see in American Christianity.”
– Scott Stewart

“Because of sin, because I am self-addicted, living in the wreckage of the fall, my body, my heart and my affections are prone to love things that kill me.”
– Donald Miller

‎”You ought to live your life with such freedom and joy that uptight Christians will doubt your salvation.”
– Steve Brown

“The gospel of justifying faith means that while Christians are, in themselves still sinful and sinning, yet in Christ, in God’s sight, they are accepted and righteous. So we can say that we are more wicked than we ever dared believe, but more loved and accepted in Christ than we ever dared hope — at the very same time. This creates a radical new dynamic for personal growth. It means that the more you see your own flaws and sins, the more precious, electrifying, and amazing God’s grace appears to you. But on the other hand, the more aware you are of God’s grace and acceptance in Christ, the more able you are to drop your denials and self-defenses and admit the true dimensions and character of your sin.”
– Tim Keller

“Election is best understood in hindsight, for it is only after coming to Christ that one can know whether one has been chosen in Christ. Those who make a decision for Christ find that God made a decision for them in eternity past.”
– Phil Ryken

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”
– C. S. Lewis

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
– C. S. Lewis

“If I am not allowed to laugh in heaven, I don’t want to go there.”
– Martin Luther

“Work like an Arminian, sleep like a Calvinist.”
– Mark Driscoll
