While I will not post the full thing here, it really is worth reading this extract from one of the Disruption Worthies in full if you have the time:

... But, blessed be God, there is another class who love God, and fear God, and think on his name. They remember that he is Jehovah, the uncreated, the self-existing God; that he is the Almighty—possessed of all power—and that his goodness and wisdom and mercy are equal to his power. They remember with thankfulness that not only has he made himself known as Jehovah-Nissi—, the Lord my banner, but as Jehovah-Tsidkenu—the Lord our Righteousness. Is it not delightful for a God-fearing people to think on the name of the Lord, when, through Christ, they can address this good, and wise, and all-powerful God as their heavenly Father? ...

But, above all, they delight to think on the greatest of all his great works, the work of Redemption through Jesus Christ his Son. Here mercy—the loveliest attribute of his character—shines forth. Here mercy and truth have met together, and righteousness and peace have kissed each other. In this he has magnified his law and made it honourable. By this he can be just and yet the justifier of the ungodly. Their meditation on his glorious name and blessed attributes is sweet; and it is necessary for closer communion with him and with increasing conformity to him. ...
