If God were not to be enjoyed in heaven, but only vast wealth, immense treasures of silver, and gold, great honour of such kind as men obtain in this world…all these would not make up for the want of God and Christ, and the enjoyment of them there. If it were empty of God, it would indeed be an empty and melancholy place. – The godly have been made sensible, as to all creature-enjoyments, that they cannot satisfy the soul; and therefore nothing will content them but God. Offer a saint what you will, if you deny him God, he will esteem himself miserable. God is the centre of his desires; and as long as you keep his soul from its proper centre, it will not be at rest. – Jonathan Edwards, “God the Best Portion of the Christian,” Works, Vol. 2, 105.
