Man is not what he thinks, man is not what he eats, man is not what he gains, man is not what he behaves, man is not what he feels, but man is what he reacts before God
Ingatlah, ketika Saudara diusir oleh orang pada saat memberitakan Injil, ada pahala untuk anda di sorga. Bagaimanapun kita dianiaya, dipermalukan, diusir, semua itu hanya membuktikan bahwa kita adalah murid Tuhan Yesus. Makin dianiaya, iman menjadi semakin teguh.
I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.
Anyone who is to find Christ must first find the church. How could anyone know where Christ is and what faith is in him unless he knew where his believers are?
John Calvin, Golden Booklet of the True Christian Life
The gospel is not a doctrine of the tongue, but of life. It cannot be grasped by reason and memory only, but it is fully understood when it possesses the whole soul and penetrates to the inner recesses of the heart.
