Robert Traill (Stedfast Adherence to the Profession of our Faith), Works 3:127-128:

What sort of a man is a believer? He is one that is brought within the chariot paved with love, for the daughters of Jerusalem, Cant. 3:10. Every one that is brought to heaven is carried in that chariot, love all over, bottom and top, and all the sides of it; every believer is a prisoner of love, he is guarded by love, till he come to heaven. Every believer is an heir of promise; the promises are his, he may count them in his estate; all the charter we have is the promise. God is our father, Christ is our redeemer, the Holy Ghost is our sanctifier, heaven is our inheritance, promises are our charter. Such a man as this, that is an heir of promise, surely he should expect the fulfilling of the promises, the estate his father has given him, and may expect to be dealt with accordingly.

We are prisoners of love. And when captivity was led captive it was with tender chains, the cords of a man and the bands of love that shackled to the chariot of love.
