Daily Carson 2/22/08

Here is today's quote from Carson's A Call to Spiritual Reformation (see Intro):
The critical turning point in their lives came when they believed the gospel: "you believed our testimony to you" (v.10). Beyond their conversion, however, Paul assumes that real Christians will ultimately persevere. The assumption is common in Scripture (e.g. Matt. 24:13; John 8:31; Heb 3:14; 1 John 2:18-19). Christians may stumble and fall, doubt like Thomas, and disown their Lord like Peter, but they ultimately will utter their "Amen" to Thomas's confession (John 20:28) and weep with Peter (Matt. 26:75)." (p. 45)
