Concerning salvation, take into consideration the almighty and all-loving Author of it, and by Whom it was accomplished. What He is in Himself, in the glories of His person, His greatness, fitness, suitability, and all-sufficiency; what He is in His work, and what He hath done for His redeemed, the salvation He hath wrought beyond all conception of value in its completeness, and beyond all reach of extent in its efficacy, being like Himself, everlasting and eternal; and what He is in His relations to His people, being their everlasting Father, Brother, Husband, Friend all these things, included as they all are in salvation, give the happy partakers of it “a joy unspeakable and full of glory;” so that every individual finds cause to join in the hymn of the church, and say: “I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation … He is the Rock, His work is perfect … just and right is He.” (Isaiah 61:10; Deuteronomy 32:4)
