When God calls a man, He does not repent of it. God does not, as many friends do, love one day, and hate another; or as princes, who make their subjects favorites, and afterwards throw them into prison. This is the blessedness of a saint; his condition admits of no alteration. God’s call is founded on His decree, and His decree is immutable. Acts of grace cannot be reversed. God blots out his people’s sins, but not their names.
They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.
The New International Version
When you have completed 95 per cent of your journey, you are only halfway there.
