    John Calvin on:    

Whatever a person may be like, we must still love them because we love God.

    Topics: Love

    Topics: Prayer

Doubtful prayer is no prayer at all.

    Topics: Prayer

It must arise not only because we feel our own need as a burden we must lay upon God, but also because we are so bound up in love for our fellow men that we feel their need as acutely as our own.

    Topics: Prayer, Intercession

We must not think that [God] takes no notice of us, when He does not answer our wishes: for He has a right to distinguish what we actually need.

    Topics: Prayer, Blessings

Wherever we find the Word of God surely preached and heard, and the sacraments administered according to the institution of Christ, there, it is not to be doubted, is a church of God.

    Topics: Preaching, Church
