Jonathan Edwards wanted his present life to be shaped by what would be most important upon entering heaven. Whatever is important there in heaven, must dominate the landscape of my life now. In this sermon Steve Lawson goes over some of the Resolutions that Jonathan Edwards wrote when he was only 18 and 19 years old.
Jonathan Edwards chose to live his life in such a way that he was not preoccupied with the visible but with the invisible, not with the temporal but with the eternal, not with the earthly but with the heavenly. He wanted his life to count to the maximum for God. – Steve Lawson
