We are simultaneously fully justified and fully sinful. Simul justus et peccator.The juxta position of Palm Sunday and Good Friday well illustrates this theological truth. On one day the crowds shouted praise to Jesus and then a few days later they shouted “Crucify him!” Beyond a pedantic theological formula, this truth is practically helpful and encouraging for us in honestly understanding our condition before God and our need for Jesus. To live within the tension of this truth is to honestly walk the path of understanding that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. This helps us to avoid two great holds of the evil one, shame and pride.
