Edwards tells us, that not only is God good, but he is the best good. While we have had only a taste of his goodness and the happiness to come, “such happiness suits [our] disposition and appetite and wishes above all other things; and not only above all things that we have but above all that we can conceive it possible that we could have. The world does not afford anything like it.” This isn’t simply waiting for God’s goodness in the future—it’s experiencing it now.
