Calvin Quoted #1 – on Good Works

Posted: 03/20/2009 in Calvin Quotes

I just found a bunch of wonderful quotes from Calvin and I hope to share many of them in the following days… Here’s our first one.

However defective the works of believers may be, they are nevertheless pleasing to God through the intervention of pardon… Reward is given to their efforts, even though imperfect, exactly as if thy had fully discharged their duty.”

– John Calvin

I personally love those words “pleasing to God through the intervention of pardon.” Oh, how sweet is the forgiveness and imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ! By grace our imperfectons are made useful, our blemishes are covered by His purity, and glory is brought to His name.
