God's chief end is to glorify God and enjoy himself forever.
God does all things for his namesake. The problem with people
believing this is not that the bible does not speak of it, but that we
as humans hate the of self glorification. We find great
displeasure in people who seek and demand that we praise them.
But, should we feel this way toward God? If God is the essence of
beauty, then he does something beautiful, when he demands to have all
of our hearts love . God's desire to be glorified in all aspects
of our lives is what brings him glory and it brings us our
pleasure. If God's good plan is to delight in himself then his
plan is fulfilled in worship fulfilled saints. He does not commit
idolatry by being pleased in their praise as he is delighting in his
own excellences that he sees in them. The Father delights in
these excellences that he has brought about in them through the work of
his Spirit, paid for by the blood of his Son, and that He by His good
pleasure brings to pass. So when God glorifies himself in our
lives he takes joy in himself. This is the most loving thing he
can do because our joy in God is routed in his ever overflowing delight
in himself. We become beneficiaries of this delight as we seek to
glorify God by enjoying him forever.
