For the Lord’s Day 5.14.17

Dear Covenant Church Family,

“We have been forewarned that an enemy relentlessly threatens us, an enemy who is the very embodiment of rash boldness, of military prowess, of crafty wiles, of untiring zeal and haste, of every conceivable weapon and of skill in the science of warfare.  We must, then, bend our every effort to this goal: that we should not let ourselves be overwhelmed by carelessness or faintheartedness, but on the contrary, with courage rekindled stand our ground in combat.”

– John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, The Westminster Press, Philadelphia, PA, 1960, pp. 173.
