Theological and Doxological Meditation #2

Direction in Man’s Chief End

Q: What rule hath God given to direct ushow we may glorify and enjoy him?

A: The Word of God, which is contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments (2 Tim. 3:16; Eph. 2:20), is the only rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy him (1 John 1:3-4).

Holy Bible, Book Divine (click title to play)

Holy Bible, book divine
precious treasure, you are mine;
mine to tell me whence I came;
mine to teach me what I am;

Mine to chide me when I rove;
mine to show a Savior’s love;
mine you are to guide and guard;
mine to punish or reward;

Mine to comfort in distress;
suff’ring in this wilderness;
mine to show by living faith,
man can triumph over death;

Mine to tell of joys to come,
and the rebel sinner’s doom;
Holy Bible, book divine,
precious treasure, you are mine.
