"An Ineffable Pitch of Pleasure and Joy"
Meditate deeply on Jonathan Edwards’ comments concerning God’s design in our redemption:
“It was a great design of God to advance all the elect to an exceeding pitch of glory, such as eye has not seen. He intended to bring them to perfect excellency and beauty in his image and in holiness which is the proper beauty of spiritual beings, and to advance ‘em to a glorious degree of honor and also to an ineffable pitch of pleasure and joy.”
In all this, says Edwards, “God designed to accomplish the glory of the blessed Trinity in an exceeding degree” (Personal Narrative, 125).
An ineffable pitch of pleasure and joy in God! This is his design for you, forever, for his glory. Amen.
