The Glorious Self-Sufficiency of God

The End of History #SolidJoys

“We may conclude that the chief end of God is to glorify God and enjoy himself forever. He stands supreme at the center of his own affections. {{For that very reason, he is a SELF-SUFFICIENT and INEXHAUSTIBLE fountain of grace.}}”

Brothers and sisters, the only reason God is able to show us inexhaustible grace is because He is completely self-sufficient. The only reason He is completely self-sufficient is because He is perfection in and of Himself, therefore He takes most pleasure in Himself. And if you think about it, would you want it any other way? Would you want to serve a God that needed something else other than Himself to be utterly and completely satisfied? How then would we be able to find out satisfaction in Him, if He can’t even do so?
