"That God should shew mercy to sinners, hath the greatest condescension in it, but much more to come down and proclaim it: ‘Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!’ (Psalm 113:6); but for him not only to behold, but withal to deign to cast an eye of grace and mercy upon sinners, the things on earth, yea, and himself to descend unto earth to proclaim it, this is condescending indeed in ‘the high and lofty one.’ "
