"Terribly black must that guilt be for which nothing but the blood of the Son of God could make satisfaction. Heavy must that weight of human sin be which made Jesus groan and sweat drops of blood in agony at Gethsemane and cry at Golgotha, 'My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?' (Matt. 27:46)."
(J. C. Ryle, Holiness, 6.)
The Immeasurable Limits of Christ's Love
"The measure of love is how much it gives, and the measure of the love of God is the gift of His only Son to be made man, and to die for sins, and so to become the mediator who can bring us to God. No wonder Paul speaks of God's love as 'great' and passing knowledge! (Eph. 2:4; 3:19) .... The New Testament writers constantly point to the Cross of Christ as the crowning proof of the reality and boundlessness of God's love."
(J. I. Packer, Knowing God, 114.)
