Better Than All

“He who can say, ‘I know that my Redeemer lives,’ knows him to be better than all, for as has been observed already, ‘tis implied that he knows that he is the Christ, the Son of the living God. He sees in him that glory and excellency that is above the glory of all other things and sufficient to satisfy the soul. This beauty is so great, so divine, that the light of it when it is so clearly seen is above all things sweet.” –Jonathan Edwards “The Blessing of God” p. 54

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
