God Cannot Be Enjoyed Without Being Obeyed
Psalm 32:11; 37:4; 112:1; Proverbs 29:18
God is not otherwise to be enjoyed than as he is obeyed. Nor indeed are the notions of him, as a Lord to be obeyed, and as a Good to be enjoyed, entirely distinct; but are interwoven and do run into one another.
John Howe (1630 – 1705)
