"And a gracious heart can indeed tell how to enjoy God to be All in All to him: that is the happiness of Heaven, to have God to be All in All. The Saints in Heaven have not houses, and lands, and money, and meat, and drink, and clothes. You will say, they do not need them: why do they not? It is because God is All in All to them immediately. Now while thou livest in this world, thou mayest come to enjoy much of God, you may have much of Heaven; while we live here in this life, we may come to enjoy much of the very life there is in Heaven, and what is that but the enjoyment of God to be All in All to us?"
