CQOD: 12/04/07 -- Calvin: straying from Christ

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 4, 2007
Commemoration of Nicholas Ferrar, Deacon, Founder of the Little Gidding Community, 1637
    Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
    -- 2 Peter 1:10,11 (NIV)

    Some men, not content with [Christ] alone, are borne hither and thither from one hope to another; even if they concern themselves chiefly with him, they nevertheless stray from the right way in turning some part of their thinking in another direction. Yet such distrust cannot creep in where men have once for all truly known the abundance of his blessings.
    ... John Calvin (1509-1564), The Institutes of the Christian Religion [1559]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me to be satisfied with You alone.
