Pithy gems from John Calvin #3
~  ~  ~  ~

Scripture is like a pair of spectacles, which dispel the darkness and give us a clear view of God.
~  ~  ~  ~

Our physical illnesses serve us for medicines to purge us from our vanity and love of the world.
~  ~  ~  ~

While all men seek after happiness–scarcely one in a hundred looks for it from God.
~  ~  ~  ~

The glory of God shines, indeed, in all creatures in heaven and earth–but never more brightly than in the cross!
~  ~  ~  ~

God works in His elect in two ways:
inwardly, by His Spirit;
outwardly, by His Word.
~  ~  ~  ~

A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw that God’s truth is attacked, and yet would remain silent.

Every one of us is, even from his mother’s womb, a master craftsman of idols!
