How to Kill and Be Killed 101: The Pursuit "Happiness" Defined.

Amen and Amen.

Q. What is the chief end of man?

A. To glorify God and enjoy him forever. - Westminster Shorter Catechism, Question 1

"You made us for yourself and our hearts find no peace until they rest in you." - St. Augustine

"God is most glorified when we are most satisfied in him." - John Piper

"Real love for God means that he must be the only thing that matters to you. He must be your greatest happiness. You are to love him as your absolute Lord and Master. You love everything about him, and you have no desire for him to be any better than he is. You want his will to be done in you so much, that you will do it no matter what it costs you. You want his will to be done whether it is prosperity or suffering, whether it is life or death. You rejoice in him in all things, and you love to obey him - even if it means you suffer the worst thing possible: death. In short, when you love God, you make him the greatest pleasure of your life." - Walter Marshall

One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple. - Psalm 27:4 ESV

Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. - Psalm 37:4 ESV

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. - Matthew 6:33 ESV

Soli Deo Gloria,

Shon
