Thirty-Six Sermons (eBook)

by John Calvin

in ePub, .mobi & pdf formats

The following are hand picked sermons of John Calvin, chosen for their God-honoring excellence and tendency toward the edification of the saints. Calvin strenuously taught that salvation is by the merit of Christ alone. At the same time, he insisted that the man who hopes for salvation, who has had a work of grace done in them, will demonstrate this fact by a changed life. The Reformer stood firmly on the chief cornerstone of the Reformation—sola Scriptura (“Scripture alone”). … The preacher, Calvin believed, has nothing to say apart from Scripture. When expounding Scripture, Calvin was remarkably straightforward and to the point. He did not launch his message with a captivating story, a compelling quote, or a personal anecdote. Instead, Calvin immediately drew his listeners into the biblical text. The focus of the message was always Scripture, and he spoke what needed to be said with an economy of words. There were no wasted statements. Calvin insisted that the words of Scripture must be interpreted in their particular historical backgrounds, original languages, grammatical structures, and biblical contexts. He insisted on the sensus literalis, the literal sense of the biblical text. As he concluded, Calvin regularly exhorted his congregation: ‘Let us fall before the majesty of our great God.’ Whatever his text, these fervent words called for the unconditional submission of his listeners.
