“Christ is the very heaven of heaven” by Richard Sibbes

“Heaven is not heaven without Christ. It is better to be any place with Christ than to be in heaven itself without Him. All delicacies without Christ are but as a funeral banquet.

Where the master of the feast is away, there is nothing but solemnness. What is all without Christ? I say the joys of heaven are not the joys of heaven without Christ. He is the very heaven of heaven…

To be with Christ is to be at the spring-head of all happiness.”

–Richard Sibbes, “Christ is Best,’ in The Works of Richard Sibbes, Vol. 1 (Carlisle, Pa.: Banner of Truth, 1634/1973), 339.
