Hugh Binning, Works, pp. 156-157:

To die to ourselves and the world, to kill sin within – O that makes way to a life hid from the world, one hour whereof is better than many ages in sinful pleasure! Quicken thyself often with this thought, that there is a true life after such a death, and that thou canst not pass into it, but by the valley of the death of thy lusts. Remember, that thou dost but kill thine enemies, which embrace that they may strangle thee; and then stir up yourself with this consideration, – the life of sin will be thy death. Better enter heaven without these lusts, than go to hell with them.
