We can only begin an upright course of life when God, of his good pleasure, adopts us into his family.
— John Calvin
The proper study of the Christian is the Godhead. The highest science, the loftiest speculation, the mightiest philosophy, which can ever engage the attention of a child of God is the name, the nature, the person, the work, the doings, and the existence of the great God whom he calls the Father.
— C. H. Spurgeon
