CQOD: 04/12/06 -- Calvin: literary grace and the Scriptures
Christian Quotation of the DayApril 12, 2006
Then Amos answered and said to Amaziah, "I was no prophet, nor a prophet's son, but I was a herdsman and a dresser of sycamore figs. But the LORD took me from following the flock, and the LORD said to me, 'Go, prophesy to my people Israel.'
-- Amos 7:14-15 (ESV)
Since such uncultivated and rude simplicity inspires greater reverence for itself than any eloquence, what ought one to conclude except that the force of Sacred Scripture is manifestly too powerful to need the art of words?
... John Calvin (1509-1564)
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, Your word never fails.
