Coffee with Calvin.
Donald McKim.

For the Word of God is not received by faith if it flits about in the top of the brain, but when it takes root in the depth of the heart that it may be an invincible defense to withstand and drive off all the stratagems of temptation.
— John Calvin – Institutes 3.2.36

Our faith cannot be just ‘head knowledge’ but must overflow our heart. Our faith cannot be expressed by winning arguments but by winning hearts through love. Humility is a fruit of our faith because we realize that our very faith is not our ‘doing’ but a gift from God. How can we boast? How can we be smug or arrogant?
