Thomas Boston, Works, 4:194:

Never entertain low thoughts of sin. It is the worst of evils, which could not be remedied but by the sufferings of Christ. It brings a heavy burden on a sinner that bears his own burdens. Behold it in the glass of Christ’s sufferings and you will think none of it little. Sin runs counter to the nature of God and dishonours all his attributes. God is the chief good; sin the worst evil. The sinner dares God’s justice, presumes on his mercy, mocks his patience, challengeth his power, despiseth his love, and invades his sovereignty. So Christ behoved to suffer the most extreme punishment to honour his justice and glorify all his perfections.
