Goal of Our Calling

maps“When we contemplate this relationship between ourselves and God, let us remember that holiness is the bond of our union with Him. Not of course, because we enter into fellowship with Him by the merit of our own holiness. Rather, we first of all cling to Him, and then, having received His holiness, we follow wherever He calls us.  For it is characteristic of His glory that He has no fellowship with sin and impurity. Holiness is the goal of our calling. Therefore we must consistently set our sights upon holiness if we would rightly respond to God’s calling.”  –Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion — “A Little Book on the Christian Life” ed. Denlinger & Parsons, Reformation Trust
