A quote from McCheyne…

By nature we love sin – the world and the things of the world – though we know that the wages of sin is death. Now, to cure this, I can imagine a man setting himself down deliberately to cross all his corrupted passions – to restrain all his appetites – to reject and trample on all the objects that the natural heart is set upon. This is the very system recommended by Satan, by Antichrist and by the world. But there is a far more excellent way, which the Holy Ghost makes use of in sanctifying us – not changing the way of objects, but the way of changing the affections – not by external restraint but by inward renewing.
