Had we never been

“His love to us is indeed precious;yea,very precious;and as the apostle saith, “we love him because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:19.) Nevertheless, had he never loved us, had he never taken our nature, nor done and suffered for us, what that love prompted him to do and suffer; yea, had we never been, the Son of God, as Son of God, would have been what he is in himself, in his divine nature, from all eternity and to all eternity,being “One with the Father,over all,God blessed for ever.Amen.”

Robert Hawker, quoted by Sanders, Fred. “The Deep Things of God: How the Trinity Changes Everything.” Crossway, 2010.
