CQOD: 12/15/05 -- Calvin: putting them to the test

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 15, 2005
    For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
    -- Romans 8:38,39 (ESV)

    Whomever the Lord has adopted and deemed worthy of his fellowship ought to prepare themselves for a hard, toilsome, and unquiet life, crammed with very many and various kinds of evil. It is the Heavenly Father’s will thus to exercise them so as to put his own children to a definite test. Beginning with Christ, his first-born, he follows this plan with all his children.
    ... John Calvin (1509-1564), The Institutes of the Christian Religion [1559]

Quiet time reflection:
    Keep me close to Your will throughout all trials.
