CQOD: 04/12/06 -- Calvin: literary grace and the Scriptures

Christian Quotation of the Day

April 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.

I have heard a lot lately about people who do not believe that Jesus actually died and was resurrected.

I wonder if the story is symbolism that teaches us that when we believe, our old selves die and a new self is resurrected (born).
