Charles Spurgeon on God as Our Only Object

This week's bulletin reflection from Charles Spurgeon:

"To Him be the glory forever!”  This should be the single desire of the Christian.  All other wishes must be subservient and tributary to this one.  The Christian may wish for prosperity in his business, but only as far as it may help him to promote this—“To Him be the glory forever!”  He may desire to attain more gifts and more graces, but it should only be that “To Him be the glory forever!”  You are not acting as you ought to do when you are moved by any other motive than a single eye to your Lord’s glory.  As a Christian, you are “of God, and through God,” then live “to God.”  Let nothing ever set your heart beating so mightily as love for Him.  Let this ambition fire your soul; let it be the foundation of every enterprise upon which you enter, and this your sustaining motive whenever your zeal would grow chill; make God your only object.
