"See how rich believers are, they are matched into the crown of heaven;. and by virtue of the conjugal union all Christ's riches go to believers, communion is founded in union. Christ communicates his graces . . . As long as Christ hath it, believers shall not want; and he communicates his privileges, justification, glorification: he settles a kingdom upon his spouse for her jointure . . . This is a key to the apostle's riddle, 2 Cor. 6:10, 'As having nothing, yet possessing all.' By virtue of the marriage-union, the saints are interested in all Christ's riches."
-- Thomas Boston, An Illustration of the Doctrines of the Christian Religion, Volume 2 (Berwick, U.K.: W. Gracie and J. Rennison, 1804), 134.
