The Gospel Lifts Men’s Hearts to the Hope of Immortality


This quote from Calvin greatly refreshed me today as it reminded me of this blessed benefit of the gospel.

“Surely the gospel does not confine men’s hearts to delight in the present life, but lifts them to the hope of immortality. It does not fasten them to earthly pleasures, but by announcing a hope that rests in heaven it, so to speak, transports them thither.” –John Calvin, Institutes, Book II.10.3
