Calvin: persevering

May 27, 2009
    Commemoration of John Calvin, renewer of the Church, 1564

    All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.
    -- Matthew 10:22 (NIV)

    It behooves us to accomplish what God requires of us, even when we are in the greatest despair respecting the results.
    ... John Calvin (1509-1564), Letters of John Calvin, Jules Bonnet, ed., letter to Philip Melanchthon, March 5, 1555, vol. 6, p. 158 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I cannot see the end, but Your blessing finds me along the way.
