The notion of free-grace may make persons dissolute, but a sense of it restrains from sin.
The goodness of God respects our emptiness, the grace of God our sinfulness, and the mercy of God our unworthiness. What sin is there which grace cannot pardon? What heart if there that grace cannot soften? What soul is there that grace cannot save?
All grace flows from Christ united to the soul, as all life flows from the soul united to the body.
the more God’s justice was declared toward His Son, the more was His mercy towards the sinner.
God humbled His Son to exalt His Grace. John Mason in Apples of Gold.
