That Stream of Corruption Runs Continually

Hugh Binning, Works, pp. 327-328:

What should we do then, since sin is always lodging in our mortal bodies, during this time of necessary abode beside an ill neighbour? What should be our exercise? Even this, – confess your sins; confess, I say, as long as you have them, draw out this the length of that. Be continually groaning to him under that body of death, and mourning under your daily infirmities and failings. That stream of corruption runs continually, – let the stream of your contrition and confession run as incessantly; and there is another stream of Christ’s blood, that runs constantly too, to cleanse you. Now, herein is the discovery of the vanity and deceitfulness of many of your confessions, public and private: the current of them soon dries up; there is no perpetuity or constancy in them, no daily humbling or abasing yourselves; but all that is, is by fits and starts upon some transient convictions or outward censures and rebukes; and thus men quickly cover and bury their sins in oblivion and security, and forget what manner of persons they were.
