By removing eternal risk, Christ calls his people to continual temporal risk.
For the followers of Jesus the final risk is gone. "There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1). "Neither death nor life . . . will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 3:38-39). "Some of you they will put to death. . . . But not a hair of your head will perish" (Luke 21:16-18). "Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live" (John 11:25).
