God delights in consummation: the consummation of the Gospel story. The consummation of all the prophets foretold. The consummation of time and history. The consummation of husband and wife. God delights to have His creation and His people reach the delight He intended for them, and He grieves over those who do not get to enjoy it, or those who get to enjoy any part of it but fail to see it as a gift from Him. Fix your eyes on what God does: the purpose, the meaning behind everything else, and to which everything else points. "Ultimate reality" is how God sees reality, and ultimate reality is is the only thing that matters in the end.
