Thomas Watson:

“Wicked men have mercies by Providence, not by virtue of a covenant; with God’s leave, not with his love. But such as are in covenant have their mercies sweetened with God’s love, and they swim to them in the blood of Christ.”

~A Body of Divinity (Edinburgh: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1958), pp. 107, 110.
