Some Quotes From Jonathan Edwards

Next meeting: Feb. 3rd in the Susquehanna room.

On happiness...
“The happiness of the creature consists in rejoicing in God, by which also God is magnified and exalted.”

On heaven...
“To pretend to describe the excellence, the greatness or duration of the happiness of heaven by the most artful composition of words would be but to darken and cloud it; to talk of raptures and ecstasies, joy and singing, is but to set forth very low.”

On holiness...
“As God delights in his own beauty, he must necessarily delight in the creature's holiness which is a conformity to and participation of it, as truly as (the) brightness of a jewel, held in the sun's beams, is a participation or derivation of the sun.'”

Next Meeting: The Delaware Room

"Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth.

Serve the LORD with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful singing.
Know that the LORD Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving
And His courts with praise
Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
For the LORD is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations."

Psalm 100
