Robert Traill (Stedfast Adherence to the Profession of our Faith), Works 3:150-151:

Should not Jesus Christ our Lord be very precious to us? Whenever we think of the prize of our calling, we must always remember Christ, and our debt to him; he bought this prize by his blood. Heaven is a fruit of the price of Christ’s blood, heaven is a palace built upon the foundation of the blood of the Son of God; he hath bought it by his blood, and he offers it freely to us by his grace: Whoever accepts his offer, he takes them and leads them kindly by the hand; he brings many sons unto glory, Heb. 2:10; and at last, when he hath brought them through all, he himself puts the crown on with his own hands: Looking, says the apostle, for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, unto eternal life. Ye have got a deal of mercy from him before, but the grand gift of mercy will be, when the believer shall kneel at Christ’s feet, and receive the crown of glory at his hands. It is impossible that a man can have right thoughts of heaven that has not right thoughts of Jesus Christ; and it is impossible that a man can have right thoughts of Jesus Christ, but his heart will be filled with heaven.
