“This infiniteness of grace, in respect of its spring and fountain, will answer all objections that might hinder our souls from drawing nigh to communion with him, and from a free embracing of him. Will not this suit us in all our distresses? What is our finite guilt before it? Show me the sinner that can spread his iniquities to the dimensions (if I may say) of [Christ's] grace. Here is mercy enough for the greatest, the oldest, the most stubborn transgressor…” -John Owen, Communion with the Triune God
