Our Perseverance is Dependent on God

“We must not, then, in any way presume upon the grace of God but we must live in constant fear and trembling. If God relaxed His restraining care over us for a moment then no matter how far we may have progressed in sanctification, our hearts would immediately break out in insolent contempt of God. We are always prone to receive lies, to chase after frivolities and to abhor the truth. Even for the believing man nothing is so evanescent as faith and nothing flows away so easily as love.”

-Ron Wallace, from his Calvin’s Doctrine on the Christian Life, p.337
