john-calvin-2-sizedThe law is nothing else but a preparation unto the Gospel. The faithful cannot profit in the Gospel until they shall first be humbled, which cannot be until they come to a knowledge of their sins. It is the proper function of the law to call the consciences into God’s judgement, and to wound them with fear. Christ is promised only to those who are humbled, and confounded with the sense of their own sins.”

John Calvin
