Our purpose in Christ is to worship God and enjoy him eternally.
Why does God bless us? So we can make a big deal about how great we are? Or does he bless us so that he will be made great?
The entire point of God’s blessing is his glory. God blesses us with every spiritual blessing in Christ so that we may enjoy and glorify him forever. This means that our purpose in Christ is to worship God and enjoy him eternally.
