The supreme end of man is to know God.
Knowing Him is the greatest and highest privilege for mankind.
Man was born to fellowship with God, with Jesus Christ.
Someone may ask, what is God like? What is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit like?
He is the most wonderful, most beautiful Person in the universe.
