True Pleasure in True Religion – Matthew Henry

by | September 27, 2019

There is true pleasure in true religion. … You startle at it, and start from it as a hard saying, like Nathaniel, when he said, ‘Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?’ (John 1.46). So you are ready to say, can there be any pleasure in religion? Believe it, sirs, there can be, there cannot but be pleasure in it. 

– Matthew Henry – 
from The Pleasantness of a Religious Life, 1714
