Robert Traill (The Lord's Prayer, John 17:24), Works 2:161:

The name of God is love to sinners, John 3:16; 1 John 4:8-10, 16. It is impossible that a sinner can act any dependence on God for salvation, unless there be some manifestation of his name as love. Whenever any beam of this love darts in upon a poor sinner, the man begins to live and hope immediately. I mean not, that every one should believe this proposition, That God loves me; but only, that God hath a wonderful great love to save sinners, which he hath proved in giving his own Son to be a Saviour; that this love runs out to men in and by Jesus Christ; and all that would have it for themselves, should strive to get near to this Sun, that when its light and heat is seen and felt, they may be saved.
