Excerpt from One Thing:
“The Christian is not one who swings like a spiritual pendulum, as if forgiven one moment and condemned the next, only to be forgiven yet again, endlessly back and forth between God’s redeeming grace and retributive wrath.
Paul couldn’t have been more explicit. The definition of a Christian is one who is not now nor ever shall be condemned: no condemnation!
A believer may feel condemned. For that matter, an unbeliever may feel forgiven (even though he isn’t)!
But this is not an issue of subjective sensations or inner impressions. This is our eternal position in Christ, now and forever.“
– Sam Storms
“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
