'The way to heaven is a heavenly life. ... Seek heaven only by Jesus Christ ... If we therefore would improve our lives as a journey towards heaven, we must seek it by him and not by our own righteousness: as expecting to obtain only for his sake, looking to him, having our dependence on him only for the purchase of heaven, and procuring it for us by his merit. And expect strength to walk in a way of holiness, the way that leads to heaven, only from him.'

Jonathan Edwards, 'True Christian's Life a Journey Towards Heaven' in Works, 17, 433.
