“Jesus Christ holds out His arms to receive us as often as the gospel is preached to us” by John Calvin

“If our Lord is so good to us to have His doctrine still preached to us, we have by that a sure and infallible sign that He is near at hand to us, and that He seeks our salvation, and that He calls us to Himself as though He spoke with open mouth, and as if we see Him personally before us. Jesus Christ holds out His arms to receive us as often as the gospel is preached to us.”

–John Calvin, Sermons on the Epistle to the Ephesians, Sermon on Ephesians 4:11-12 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 1973), 368.
