Our Whole Life Long

Bavinck, in the midst of exulting in Luther's doctrine of justification:
God's grace and it alone is the object of a Christian's trust, at the beginning of a Christian's conversion and similarly to the end of one's life.
--Reformed Dogmatics, 4:196

P.S. If you don't like Bavinck, you might want to stay away for a few weeks! I'm working on a paper on Bavinck's view of justification so I'm immersed in the great Netherlander at the moment.
