We Are Not Our Own

"We are not our own; therefore, neither is our own reason or will to rule our acs and counsels. We are not our own; therefore, let us not make it our end to seek what may be agreeable to our carnal nature. We are not our own; therefore, as far as possible, let us forget ourselves and the things that are ours. On the other hand, we are God's; let us, therefore, live and die to him (Romans 14:8). We are God's; therefore let his wisdom and will preside over all our actions. We are God's; to him, then, as the only legitimate end, let every part of our life be directed."

John Calvin
