I posted this quote from Johnathan Edwards in a previous post but thought it deserved a post all of it’s own:

“The enjoyment of God is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Fathers and mothers, husbands, wives or children, or the company of earthly friends, are but shadows; but God is the substance. These are but scattered beams, but God is the sun. These are but streams. But God is the ocean.” Jonathan Edwards

  1. Thanks for that. It’s easy to see from that quite the influence Edwards has on Piper. By the way, another man greatly influenced by Edwards just published an apologetic (i have it on order and can’t wait to read it). Check it out: http://reasonforgod.com/
