Grace inspires gratitude

“Until people are persuaded that God is the fountain of all our good, and that He has left no part of our salvation to them, Calvin insists, ‘they will never devote themselves wholly, truly, and sincerely to Him.’ Grace inspires gratitude. ‘There is… an exact parallel in this respect between piety and faith,’…Only because of the forgiveness of sins that comes from Christ can the uneasy conscience ever be assured that God is indeed good and the source of all good.”

Michael Horton, People and Place, p. 303

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.
