Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) preached his first sermon at the age of 18. His thesis was that “Christians should be happy” and he explained why in three points:
- #1: Our bad things will turn out for good.
- #2: Our good things can never be taken away from us.
- #3: The best things are yet to come.
A simple sermon, and a profound reminder.
