Jonathan Edwards on our relationship to God

"God himself is the great good which (the redeemed) are
brought to the possession of and enjoyment of by redemption.
He is the highest good and the sum of all good which Christ
purchased. God is the inheritance of the saints; he is the
portion of their souls. God is their wealth and treasure,
their food, their life, their dwelling place, their ornament
and diadem, and their everlasting honor and glory."

From The Works of Jonathan Edwards, Vol. 17
