Lord's Day, August 9.

Comment from Jonathan Edwards:
In his diary for [this day] he speaks of longing desires after death, through a sense of the excellency of a state of perfection.

Lord's Day, July 26.

This day I saw clearly that I should never be happy; yea, that God himself could not make me happy, unless I could be in a capacity to 'please and glorify him for ever.' Take away this, and admit me into all the fine heavens that can be conceived of by men or angels, and I should still be miserable for ever.
