I like what Paul said…. I am saved, I am being saved, I will be saved.
But, to simply say that “I am saved” is pure arrogance and arrogance breeds apathy.
So, these are my thoughts.
I am saved:
I am saved by the past work of Christ, of nothing I have done, but chosen before the foundation of the world
I am being saved:
I am being saved by my participation in the work of Christ. My works are human, and in my humanity, and made anything only by Christ. I participate, but do not add or earn.
I will be saved:
In my times of distress I will be saved. In the moment of separation, I will be saved. In death or dire, I will be saved, but not yet
