The Question & Importance of Affection

I've started reading Religious Affections by Jonathan Edwards. I've started reading it because I feel like I'm guarded, without passion and zeal; at least for the right things, expressing them in the right way. Here is a quote I came across today.

How they (read "we" or "I" [added]) can sit and hear of the infinite height, and depth, and length, and breath of the love of God in Christ Jesus, of His giving His infinitely dear Son, to be offered up a sacrifice for the sins of men, and of the unparalleled love of the innocent, and holy, and tender Lamb of God, manifested in His dying agonies, His bloody sweat, His loud and bitter cries, and bleeding heart, and all of this for enemies, to redeem them from deserved, eternal burnings, and to bring to unspeakable and everlasting joy and glory - and yet be cold and heavy, insensible, and regardless! Where are the exercises of our affections proper, if not here? What is it that does require more? (pg. 52)

I'm looking forward to how Edwards answers this.
