Do All To The Glory of God

The best of us, when we come to pray, what a deep sense we have of our own needs, and no desire of the glory of God. How necessary it is that the Lord should have his glory. The world serves no other purpose; it was made and continues for God's glory (Rom 11:39). God did not make us for ourselves, but for his glory.

O that poor worms should come and put the crown upon God's head! How forward have we been to dishonour God in thought, word, and deed, before the Lord wrought upon us! Now that the Lord has put grace in our hearts, we are a people created for his glory--'Every one who is called by my name, and whom I have created for my glory'(Isa 43:7).

Thomas Manton
Works I:71-72
