“The enjoyment of [God] is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accomodations here. Fathers, 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.”
– John Piper’s paraphrase of Jonathan Edwards prose
