Our standing in Christ is unalterable. John Bunyan used to say that he had two sorts of money – that which was deposited in the bank, and that which he had in his pocket. The former was, on the whole, permanent, while the other was always changing. Thus he said it was between him and the Saviour. His feelings, like the loose coins in his pocket, were always changing, but his capital was lodged safely in the strong keeping of Christ.
(F. B. Meyer)
