Consciously and Continuously

Walter Marshall says, “By nature, you are completely addicted to [a] legal method of salvation. Even after you become a Christian by believing the gospel, your heart is still addicted to salvation by works.” After all, if the Apostle Peter could slip back into self-justification (Gal. 2), so can I. And I do. And so I need the encouragement of Francis Schaeffer in his Letters, where he writes, “Let us pray for each other and go back again and again to the finished work of Christ” (mildly paraphrased). In other words, let us live our lives tied and tethered to the cross of Jesus so that we may be ever mindful of the gospel—consciously and continuously.
