J.C. Ryle in Foundations of Faith
Who can estimate the value of God's gift, when He gave to the world His only begotten Son! It is something unspeakable and incomprehensible. It passes man's understanding. Two things there are which man has no arithmetic to reckon, and no line to measure. One of these things is the extent of that man's loss who loses his own soul. The other is the extent of God's gift when he gave Christ to sinners Sin must indeed be exceeding sinful, when the Father must needs give His only Son to be the sinner's Friend!
