Monday's Meditation

This week's quotes are from John Calvin's Golden Booklet of The True Christian Life
"The Divine law contains a most fitting and well ordered plan for the regulation of our life; yet it has pleased the heavenly Teacher to direct us by a very excellent key principle. It is the duty of believers to 'present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto' (Romans 12:1 KJV); this is the only true worship.
"The principle of holiness leads to the exhortation, 'Be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is the will of God.' (Romans 12:2). It is a very important consideration that we are consecrated and dedicated to God. It means that we think, speak, meditate, and do all things with a view of God's glory."

"We are God's own; to him, therefore, let us live and die. We are God's own; therefore let his wisdom and will dominate all our actions. We are God's own; therefore let every part of our existence be directed towards him as our only legitimate goal."
