The Pleasantness of Religion

"There is no pleasure but what brings more of sorrow than of pleasure, but what the godly man either does or may enjoy."

"Religion brings no new trouble upon a man but what brings more of pleasure than of trouble."

From The Pleasantness of Religion (1723), by Jonathan Edwards.
This is one of the sermons that is not published in the Works Volumes. It can be found in The Sermons of Jonathan Edwards: A Reader published by Yale University Press.
