O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD (Ps. 34:8).

Taste and see how good the Lord is; for taste Him we may, but we can
but taste Him while we live here. We shall not have a full
comprehension of Him till we come to see as we are seen. . . .

But how can we taste Him that is not bodily? How can we see Him that
is not visible? Not Him, indeed, but His goodness; and not His
goodness neither in itself, but in its effects; and not in its effects
neither, as they shall be, but as they are, which, God knows, is but a
small part of what they shall be.

O, then, taste and see how good the Lord is. If you would but taste
Him, you would never take pleasure in other things. If you would but
see Him, you would never delight in another object. O my soul, if you
could but taste the sweetness, if you could but see the goodness that
is in God, it would make you fall into a greater ecstasy than that of
Peter at the sight of Christ’s glory in the Mount.

(From Sir Richard Baker, MEDITATIONS AND DISQUISITIONS, cited in
PURITAN DAILY DEVOTIONAL CHRONICLES.)
