God’s Consistent Love For His Children

“The author speaks expressly of the love of God, touching believers’ justification, and eternal salvation, which, according to the Scripture, he reckons to be given them already. And he asserts, that as no good in them, or done by them, did move him to love them, so as to justify them, and give them eternal life, so no evil in them or done by them, shall lessen that love, as to their justification and eternal salvation;”

Edward Fisher with Thomas Boston notes, The Marrow of Modern Divinity,  231
