God, when He created man and woman in His image and likeness, chose mankind to be His delight. He is the heavenly Father of all who put their faith and trust in His Son, Jesus Christ (belief in His Person and His Work). We who believe are God’s children and as any good father knows, there is nothing more pleasing than seeing His children do well. He rejoices to see them succeed, to live lives pleasing to him, to have joy in their soul. He will do most anything to see that all this happens for his children. His children are his delight---they are his glory!
Similarly, nothing pleases our heavenly Father more than to see us reflect His image and so He pours His blessings on us in order to make this possible. We are His, “glory,” the objects of His love and affection.
