Robert Traill (The Throne of Grace), Works 1:134:

He that hath obtained special mercy, hath a love to it, and to the giver of it, and to the way God gives it, and in which he receives it. He that is a lover of God’s mercy in Christ, is an obtainer of it. A natural man may have a liking of God’s mercy in general: but mercy as from God through Jesus Christ, mercy shown on the account of a full satisfaction made to justice in and by his blood, mercy given freely to glorious ends and purposes, every natural man seeth no glory, no goodness, no beauty, in it. But every obtainer of it doth admire every thing in it. “It is rich mercy, saith he; it flows from a blessed fountain, free love; runs in a blessed channel, the redemption of Jesus; comes to me in a well-ordered covenant; and was shown me for his praise in my salvation from sin and misery.”
