WSC Q2: Our Only Rule

Q. 2. What rule has God given to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy him?
A. The Word of God, which is contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, is the only rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy him.

Based off of question one, question two actually gives us good news. As fallen men, we fail to accomplish our chief end. We fail to glorify God and we fail to enjoy him. And yet, their is good news. God would be perfectly just to leave us in our estate as rebellious men with no desire or knowledge of how we might glorify and enjoy him. But he doesn’t.

Our gracious God has provided in his Word everything that is needed for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16-170). In it, he not only tells us how we might glorify him but also how we might enjoy him. And it is sufficient for these things. Do you want to know how to glorify God, how to obey him, how to honor his name? Look to Scripture. Do you want to know how to enjoy God, how to have everlasting joy and eternal peace? Look no further than the Old and New Testaments. God has not left us to our own devices – he directs us. That is good news.
