No Matter What Happens

John Calvin:
...our chief consolation is that this is the cause of God and that he will take it in hand to bring it to a happy issue.  Even though all the princes of the earth were to unite for the maintenance of our Gospel, still we must not make that the foundation of our hope.  So, likewise, whatever resistance we see today offered by almost all the world to the progress of the truth, we must not doubt that our Lord will come at last to break through all the undertakings of men and make a passage for his word.  Let us hope boldly, then, more than we can understand; he will still surpass our opinion and our hope.
--found in The Puritan Hope by Iain Murray (highly recommended!)


  1. Yes, thanks Sharon. I found you tnrough Heidi's link.
    I've had a look here. I love your psalm recordings. We are also EP. Thanks for having me.

  2. That book should be required reading, really good. The sermon in the back of the book is inspiring.

  3. Thanks for sharing that God-exalting, faith-filled quote, Sharon! Our Almighty, All-Knowing God is such a comfort to us!
    It was great to see you at the RP conference too--so glad it was such a blessing to you!
