Hugh Binning, Works, pp. 114-115:

For as many as have the inward dreadful apprehension of this wrath to come, and know not what to do, know that to you is Jesus Christ preached, the second Adam, a quickening spirit; and in that consideration, better than the first, – not only a living soul himself, but a spirit to quicken you who are dead in sins, – one who hath undertaken for you, and will hold you fast. Adam, who should have kept us, lost himself; Christ in a manner lost himself to save us. And as by Adam’s disobedience all this sin and misery hath abounded on man, know, that the second Adam’s obedience and righteousness are of greater virtue and efficacy to save, and instead of sin to restore righteousness, and instead of death to give life. Therefore you may come to him, and you shall be more surely kept than before.

If I read this not long ago I would have thought this was only for the unregenerate.
