Those that despair, by reason of the greatness of their guilt and corruption, do greatly dishonor and undervalue the grace of God, His infinite mercy, and the infinite  merits of Christ’s blood, and power of His Spirit, and deserve to perish with Cain and Judas…

—How horrid and heinous soever our sins and corruptions have been, we should learn to account them a small matter in comparison to the grace of Christ, who is God as well as man, and offered up Himself, by the eternal Spirit, as a sacrifice of infinite value, for our salvation; and can create us anew as easily as He created the world by a word of speaking.

-Walter Marshall, The Gospel Mystery of Sanctification, p. 83.
