For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.
Do You Love Your School Principal?
For the first twenty years of my Christian journey, loving God was about as foreign to me as loving the school principal would have been when I was a student. The principal was in charge, so I respected and obeyed him. I submitted to his authority, but I certainly didn’t feel close to him.
—Wayne Hobbes, in Discipleship Journal, January/February 2008
The chief end of man is to glorify God by enjoying him forever. Love of God is not embraced until his goodness is tasted.
