We Are Ordered That We May Have Enjoyment

This is the aim and intendment of the Lord Christ in the institution of all gospel ordinances and administrations,—that they may be of use for the house and family of God, and all his children and servants therein.
It is true, the word is preached to all the world, to gather in the children of God’s purpose that are scattered up and down in the world, and to leave the rest inexcusable; but the prime end and aim of the Lord Christ thereby is, to gather in those heirs of salvation unto the enjoyment of that feast of fat things which he hath prepared for them in his house.

~John Owen
