What is the main point of life? What is the purpose of it all?

To put it another way, what is the chief end of man?

The correct answer is that we exist to glorify the Triune God and enjoy him forever.  This means God’s glory is your greatest enjoyment.  We exist to praise, glorify, and “hallow” God’s name (Luke 11:2).  And yet, “to expect someone who is not converted (not trusting in Christ by faith alone) to glorify (hallow) God’s name would be as ridiculous as expecting me to fly to the sun on wings of ice.”

-Ian Hamilton explaining question and answer #1 of the Westminster Shorter Catechism
