What is your position in Christ?
Our position in Christ is forever secured by the one-time act of faith in Christ as Savior, but our sanctification or being saved (which is our condition) requires our continued faith in Christ. We are justified only once by our faith in Christ (when we once received Him as our personal Lord and Savior).
