For God’s Satisfaction

Came across this in volume 1 of John Owen’s works, The Glory of Christ.

God doth delight in the actual accomplishment of his works. He made not this world, nor any thing in it, for its own sake. Much less did he make this earth to be a theatre for men to act their lusts upon—the use which it is now put to, and groans under. But he made “all things for himself,” Prov. xvi. 4 ; he “made them for his pleasure,” Rev. iv. 11 ; that is, not only by an act of sovereignty, but to his own delight and satisfaction.
