Calvin: persevering

Saturday, September 14, 2019
    Feast of the Holy Cross
    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), in a letter to Philip Melanchthon, March 5, 1555, Letters of John Calvin, v. III, Jules Bonnet, ed., New York: B. Franklin, 1972, p. 158 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 10:22; Luke 22:31-32; Heb. 2:1; 1 Pet. 1:6-7; 2 Pet. 1:10-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I cannot see the end, but Your blessing finds me along the way.
