A Taste of Calvin…

As we come up to the end of Calvin’s 500th birthday month, I hope that some of you have had your taste whetted to dive in an study Calvin’s own work.  If you’re not yet interested, here’s a quote which should be sure to motivate:

“But how can the mind be aroused to taste the divine goodness without at the same time being wholly kindled to love God in return? For truly, that abundant sweetness which God has stored up for those who fear Him cannot be known without at the same time powerfully moving us. and once anyone has been moved by it, it utterly ravishes him and draws him to itself.”

-John Calvin Institutes III. ii. 41
