Hugh Binning, Works, p. 337:

This is the round in which a believer is to walk, – to turn from pardon to purity, and from pollution again to pardon, for these voices and sounds are interchanged continually. If ye have sinned, believe in Christ the advocate and sacrifice, and, because ye have believed, sin not; but if ye be overtaken in sin, yet believe. And as this is daily renewed, so the soul’s study and endeavour in them should be daily renewed too. If ye have sinned, despair not; if ye be pardoned, yet presume not. After sin there is hope, it is true, because “there is forgiveness with him;” but after forgiveness, there must be fear to offend his goodness; for there is forgiveness with him, that he may be feared, Ps. 130:4. And this is the situation I would desire my soul in, – to be placed between hope of his mercy and fear of sin, the faith of his favour and the hatred of sin, which he will not favour; and how happy were a soul to be confined within these, and kept captive to its true liberty!
