Robert Traill (The Throne of Grace), Works, 1:28:

Consider how costly the erecting of this throne of grace was. It was a dear building. The throne of God’s essential glory is in his own super-excellent being, and falls under no acts of the divine will. When he had a mind to rear up a throne of glory to his name, in creating a world, there was no more needful but his word of power, his almighty Fiat, Let it be; and all things sprung up out of nothing, in marvellous order, and beauty, and goodness. But when a throne of grace is to be erected for sinners, there is more to be done. Here God’s own Son must be made man; in that nature must be charged with their sins; and must discharge that debt, by bearing the wrath of God, and curse of the law, even unto death. Rom. 3:25, the apostle gives us a description of the throne of grace: God hath set forth Christ to be a propitiation, a mercy-seat, a throne of grace. But his blood went for it: law and justice exacted it, and Christ paid it. On this comes forth the blessed proclamation of grace, “Whoever he be of lost mankind that will come to this throne of grace by faith, and will receive his justification in and by this blood, and will trust to it only, shall never come into condemnation.”
