Jesus' Love Does Infinitely Overtop the Highest Mountains of Our Sins

Be always greatly abased for your remaining sin, and never think that you lie low enough for it, but yet don’t be at all discouraged or disheartened by it; for though we are exceeding sinful, yet we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous, the preciousness of whose blood, and the merit of whose righteousness and the greatness — of whose love and faithfulness does infinitely overtop the highest mountains of our sins.

– Jonathan Edwards, in his letter dated June 3, 1741 to Deborah Hatheway.
