Fountain of Love

Posted: December 22, 2011 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship

“There, in heaven, this infinite fountain of love — this eternal Three in One — is set open without any obstacle to hinder access to it, as it flows forever.  There this glorious God is manifested and shines forth in full glory, in beams of love.  And there this glorious fountain forever flows forth in streams, yea, in rivers of love and delight, and these rivers swell, as it were, to an ocean of love, in which the souls of the ransomed may bathe with the sweetest enjoyment, and their hearts, as it were, be deluged with love!”

Jonathan Edwards, “Heaven is a world of love,” in Charity and its Fruits (London, 1969), pages 327-328.
