The sum of our salvation in Christ

leave a comment »

Guy Davies shows us Calvin the worshipping poet:

When we see that the whole sum of our salvation,
and every single part of it, are comprehended in Christ,
we must beware of deriving even the minutes portion
of it from any other quarter.

If we seek salvation,
we are taught by the very name of Jesus that he possesses it;
if we seek any other gifts of the Spirit, we shall find them in his unction;
strength in his government;
purity in his conception;
indulgence in his nativity,
in which he was made like us in all respects,
in order that he might learn to sympathise with us.

If we seek redemption,
we shall find it in his passion;
acquittal in his condemnation;
remission of the curse in his cross;
satisfaction in his sacrifice;
purification in his blood;
reconciliation in his descent to hell;
mortification of the flesh in his sepulchre.

Newness of life in his resurrection;
immortality also in his resurrection;
the inheritance of a celestial kingdom
in his entrance into heaven;
protection, security, and the abundant supply
of all blessings, in his kingdom;
secure anticipation of judgement
in the power of judging committed to him.

In fine, since in him all kinds of blessings are treasured up,
let us draw a full supply from him, and none from any other quarter.

(From Institutes Book II:16:19. Versified by Guy Davies)

The malfunctional seventh

leave a comment »

magnificent-sevenI find myself among august company over at The Exiled Preacher: Guy Davies has added me to the roll of those who blog in the name of the Lord: series five, interview seven.  Should you be interested, you can read Guy’s penetrating questions and my opaque answers here.

(By the way, I am not changing the picture even if Guy sticks in more interviewees.)

Read more interviews in the Series 4 box set.

The Exiled Preacher interviews Paul Wallace

leave a comment »

Guy Davies interviews my friend from Magherafelt, Paul Wallace (who blogs at Reformed and Baptist).  Paul has some good things to say in answer to a question about what it means to be both Reformed and Baptistic (contra those who would suggest that they are mutually exclusive).
