"Love so follows knowledge,
that no man can perfectly love God
who has not previously
a full comprehension of His goodness."
"Lord, it belongs not to my care
whether I die or live;
To love and serve Thee is my share,
and this Thy grace must give.
If life be long, I will be glad,
that I may long obey;
If short - then why should I be sad
to soar to endless day?"
"We should not interpret Scripture
in the light of our experiences,
but we should examine our experiences
in the light of the teaching of Scripture."
“Now we shall possess a right definition of faith
if we call it a firm and certain knowledge of
God’s benevolence toward us,
founded upon the truth
of the freely given promise in Christ,
both revealed to our minds
and sealed upon our hearts
through the Holy Spirit.”
-- John Calvin
