A sea of sweetness

I love this post by Justin Taylor at his blog Between Two Worlds:

Where All True Delights and Pleasures Meet

John Flavel:

Christ [is] the very essence of all delights and pleasures, the very soul and substance of them. As all the rivers are gathered into the ocean, which is congregation or meeting-place of all waters in the world: so Christ is that ocean in which all true delights and pleasures meet. . . .

His excellencies are pure and unmixed; he is a sea of sweetness without one drop of gall.

The Method of Grace, from Sermon XII.
