Why Must We Glorify God? (Reason 3)

8 12 2007

Because the glory of God has intrinsic value and excellence; it transcends the thoughts of men, and the tongues of angels.  His glory is his treasure, all his riches lie here; as Micah said in Judges 28:24 ‘What have I more?’ So, what has God more?  God’s glory is worth more than heaven, and more worth than the salvation of all men’s souls.  Better kingdoms be thrown down, better men and angels be annihilated, than God should lose one jewel of his crown, one beam of his glory.” 

Thomas Watson from the sermon Man’s Chief End
