Power To Give Life

Blume mit Schmetterling und Biene 1uf

Hugh Binning, Works, p. 49:

O! that is a sweet and ample commission given to our friend and brother, Jesus Christ, – power to repeal sentences passed against us; power and authority to absolve them whom justice hath condemned, and to bless whom the law hath cursed, and to open their mouth to praise whose mouth sin and guiltiness hath stopped; power to give the answer of a good conscience to thy evil self-tormenting conscience! In a word, he hath power to give life, to make alive and heal those who are killed or wounded by the commandment.
