But God's first motive must have been just the exercise of his own essential perfections, and in their exercise the manifestation of their excellence. This was the only end which could have been chosen by the divine mind in the beginning, before the existence of any other object.

And he is the most exalted 'when he is made absolutely subservient to that end, which is the highest possible even to the Creator. The Scriptures are very explicit on this subject. (1.) They directly assert it. All things were created by him and for him. For of him, and through ...… (mer)
