Hugh Binning, Works, p. 159:

Do not so much look on victory and freedom from sin as a duty and task, though we be infinitely bound to it; but rather as a privilege and dignity conferred upon us by Christ. Look not upon it, I say, only as your duty, as many do; and by this means are discouraged from the sight of their own infirmity and weakness, as being too weak for such a strong party; but look upon it as the one half, and the greater half, of the benefit conferred by Christ’s death, – as the greater half of the redemption which the Redeemer, by his office, is bound to accomplish. He will redeem Israel from all his iniquities; “with him is plenteous redemption,” Ps. 130:7, 8. This is the plenty, this is the sufficiency of it, – that he redeems not only from misery, but from iniquity, and that, all iniquities.

Let my people go, that they may worship me. True "liberation theology".

If we think we had it easier when we were in bondage to sin, we probably don't understand the lightness of Christ's burden and true Christian liberty.

Thanks for the quote!
