Believing of His Precious Promises is Salvation

Hugh Binning, Works, p. 30:

La Normandie Jules Janin illustration 95Our Lord Jesus Christ, – an expert Saviour, and very learned and complete for this work, – he brings man out of this pit of misery by that same way he fell into it. He fell down by unbelief, and he brings him up out of it by faith. This is the cord that is cast down to the poor soul in the dungeon; or rather his faith is the dead-grip of the cord of divine promises which is sent unto the captive-prisoner; and by virtue thereof he is drawn out into the light of salvation. Unbelief of the law of God did first destroy man; now the belief of the gospel saves him. The not believing of the Lord’s threatenings was the beginning of his ruin; and believing of his precious promises is salvation.
