Seeing this question always reminds me of the story of the young lad who was being questioned:

"What is the chief end of man?"

"Why, his head, of course," he answered.

And what a glorious end it is. Imagine worthless wretches given an opportunity to glorify God and and enjoy Him forever. Only possible through Christ.

God Bless,
