Obedience is Heaven begun, and the sons of God rejoice to see him take his honour, and call all worlds around him to esteem and love him, as most worthy. They are not under the law in whole or part, so far as it has sanctions, threats, or promises. But let us hear in mind — for there may he ere long another Antinomian outbreak — that in the measure in which we win Christ, it will be our meat to do the Father’s will as it was his beforehand. Our willingness to obey just shows how far we have tasted the sweetness of the promises, how far we have apprehended Christ.

For the reference, see George Smeaton: obedience is heaven begun.
