Great Quote!

March 2, 2010

Assurance and Fear are different – but not contrary. A child may have assurance of his father’s love – yet a fear of offending him. Who was more fearful of sin than Paul? (1 Cor. 9:27) Yet who had more assurance? “Christ who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Gal. 2:20). Faith procures assurance (Eph. 1:13) fear preserves assurance.

– Thomas Watson
