The Meritorious Cause of All the Grace We Enjoy

“That scripture also gives us a little light herein, ‘And I beheld, lo! in the midst of the throne…stood a Lamb, as it had been slain’ (Rev. 5:6). This is to show the cause why grace is so freely shown to us, even for that there stands there, in the midst of the throne, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb as it had been slain, or, as it was made a sacrifice for our sin; for, as a slain Lamb, he now lives in the midst of the throne, and is the meritorious cause of all the grace we enjoy.”

– John Bunyan, Prayer, p.75
