Words for the Lord's Day

From the pen of John Calvin: On Our Debt to Christ (Thanks to Ligonier)

Let us draw from these words a good general principle: namely, in order to worship God, we do not need to look around either here or there to figure out how much we owe him. For we owe him a hundred thousand times more than we can ever pay, and though we try as much as possible, still we must confess that we are unprofitable servants (Luke 17:10). (From Sermons on 2 Samuel: Chapters 1–13).

Calvin (Jean Cauvin) was born July 10, 1509 in Noyon, France. Check out the events commemorating the quincentenary of his birth at Calvin500.
