The Doctor: The Measure of Grace

If you want to measure grace, that is how you do so – from the highest heaven down to the cross, and beyond that even to the grave, down amongst the dead.  This is the way to see the character of the reign of grace.  It was grace, the grace that was in His heart, and in the heart of the Godhead, that led Him to do all of this – eventually to give His very life a ransom for our sins…  It is there you see the bounty, the abundance, the munificence of it all.  He gave himself even unto the death of the cross.  So that aspect of grace is seen most gloriously and most brightly in Him.  – D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Romans Volume 4, p. 364
