Our Hope and Confidence

“The imputation of Christ’s active obedience is necessary, also, in order to hope and confidence respecting the endless future. If the believer founds his expectation of an eternity of blessedness upon the amount of obedience which he has himself rendered to the law and the degree of holiness which he has personally attained here upon earth, he is filled with doubt and fear respecting the final recompense”.
– W.G.T. Shedd, from his Dogmatic Theology, p.721
