Holiness is Happiness

“Holiness is not only connected with happiness, but is itself happiness. A man is miserable in proportion as he is sinful, and happy in the same degree in which he is holy….True holiness is the health and happiness, the peace and pleasure of the soul. It renders the external comforts of the believer doubly pleasant and his heaviest crosses light, his life valuable and his death desirable….He knows by experience that he is happy in proportion as his inclinations, thoughts, words and actions are holy.
-John Colquhoun, from his Treatise on the Law and Gospel, p.272-273
