Gospel delight

Posted: January 29, 2011 by doulos tou Theou in Uncategorized

“Surely the gospel does not confine men’s hearts to delight in the present life, but lifts them to the hope of immortality. It does not fasten them to earthly pleasures, but by announcing a hope that rests in heaven it, so to speak, transports them thither.”

– John Calvin, Institutes, Book II.10.3
