Quote of the day

CalvinOne of my favorite reformed theology websites, monergism.com, has recently been redesigned. While checking it out I ran across a quote from John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion that I think bears repeating here.

“The human will does not obtain grace by freedom, but obtains freedom by grace.”
– Calvin’s Institutes II.III quoting Augustine

What remarkable things God accomplished through both Calvin and Augustine. To God alone belongs the glory.
