All True Pleasure

“Regeneration is the point from which all true pleasure commences; you never live a cheerful day till you begin to live to God.”

~ John Flavel

“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

~ Psalm 16:11


A Lively Resemblance

A man fast asleep in a house on fire, and while the consuming flames are round about him, having his fancy sporting itself in some pleasant dream, is a very lively resemblance of the unregenerate soul.

~ John Flavel (1627-1691)
