J. Gresham Machen (1881–1937) on the love of God

“It is a strange thing that when men talk about the love of God, they show by every word they utter that they have no conception at all of the depths of God’s love.  If you want to find an instance of true gratitude for the infinite grace of God, do not go to those who think of God’s love as something that cost nothing, but go rather to those who in agony of soul have faced the awful fact of the guilt of sin, and then have come to know with a trembling wonder that the miracle of all miracles has been accomplished, and that the eternal Son has died in their stead.”

– J. Gresham Machen (1881–1937), Selected Shorter Writings, p. 32
