A Grace Display
God has been planning salvation for a long time. It is designed ultimately to reveal just how rich God is in grace, mercy, and love. He will put the results of the plan on display for all eternity and for all to see. What, or rather who, will that display consist of?
Throughout time and eternity the church, this society of pardoned rebels, is designed by God to be the masterpiece of His grace and goodness. F. F. Bruce
So also, throughout eternity the redeemed will be exhibited as the monuments of the marvelous grace of our loving Lord, who drew us from destruction's pit and raised us to heights of heavenly bliss, and did all this at such a cost to Himself that He spared not His own Son, and in such a manner that not a single one of His attributes, not even His justice, was eclipsed. William Hendriksen
