Calvin: Wholly Kindled

“But how can the mind be aroused to taste the divine goodness without at the same time being wholly kindled to love God in return? For truly, that abundant sweetness which God has stored up for those who fear him cannot be known without at the same time powerfully moving us.”

– John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, Vol. 1 (p. 589)
