The Only Haven of Safety

“For as the surest source of destruction to men is to obey themselves, so the only haven of safety is to have no other will, no other wisdom, than to follow the Lord wherever he leads. Let this then be the first step -- to abandon ourselves, and devote the whole energy of our minds to the service of God.”

--John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, vol. 2 (Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans, 1975) p. 7
