    Hi Bill; I love what you wrote; "There are no partially saved people!" Yet it is equally true that as long as we are in the world awaiting our Master's return; that we are responsible for the things He's left us in charge of, and that our diligence and wise dealing with His things, will be what He looks for, in our faithfulness as His House Managers. So in that sense our salvation is not yet done.

    It encourages me as a Christian to know that no matter what I go through in life whether it's death in the family or having trouble at work that I must keep the faith and never give up. Keep pressing on. It lets me know that trouble will not last always.
