John Calvin and the Psalms

15 Jan

“Moreover, that which St. Augustine has said is true, that no one is able to sing things worthy of God except that which he has received from Him. Therefore, when we have looked thoroughly and searched here and there, we shall not find better songs nor more fitting for the purpose, than the Psalms of David, which the Holy Spirit spoke and made through him. And moreover, when we sing them, we are certain that God puts in our mouths these, as if he himself were singing in us to exalt his glory.” John Calvin

    I love the worship of David, how he worships God with such unabandoned praise! This too, is my heart, to worship God with my heart, my songs, my life, my thoughts, my actions, my everything. Lord give us boldness, confindence and more of your Holy spirit that we would come to your through un ristricted in any way to offer praise to you for all you are and all you do for us. We love you Lord! Amen!!! Be blessed my friend, be blessed!
