Hugh Binning, Works, pp. 561-562:

Attend unto the order: ye must first believe on the Son, and then love him, and live unto him. Ye must first flee unto his righteousness, and then the righteousness of the law shall be wrought in you. Therefore do not weary yourselves to no purpose. Do not wrong your own souls by seeking to prevent this order, which was established for your joy and salvation. Know that you must first meet with satisfaction in all the commands of Christ, before obedience to any of them be accepted; and having met with that, know that the sincere endeavour of thy soul, and the affectionate bensal [inclination] of thy heart to thy duty, is accepted. And if ye find yourselves thereafter surcharged with guilt and unanswerable walking, yet ye know the way is to begin at this again, to believe in the Son. This is the round you must walk, as long as ye are in the body. When you are defiled, run into the fountain; and when you are washed, study to keep your garments clean; but if defiled again, get your hearts washed from wickedness.

What a beautiful thing this is, in that entails both justification and sanctification.
