The Benefits of Christ at the Resurrection
[Sung Psalm: 16] Question 38 concludes part 1 of the catechism. There are two parts to the catechism: â€śwhat man is to believe concerning God, and what duty God requires of man.â€ť We started with the question, â€śwhat is the chief end of man?â€ť â€śManâ€™s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever.â€ť Too often, when we think about â€śglorifyingâ€ť God, we think about what that means in terms of our obedience. We need to remember that our chief end â€“ our primary purpose and goal â€“ is to glorify God AND to enjoy him forever! The full enjoying of God is just as central to our existence as our glorifying him!
