in a God who is so intrinsically good that His commitment to be fully Himself is equivalent to a commitment to be very good to us. When he tells us that He is out for His own glory, and will glorify Himself by making known who He is, we can relax. It's something like a wealthy, generous father declaring his intention to display his true character. We know we're in for a bundle. That is, if we're his heirs.
