Sovereign and holy God, who didst bring John Calvin from a study of legal systems to understand the godliness of thy divine laws as revealed in Scripture: Fill us with a like zeal to teach and preach thy Word, that the whole world may come to know thy Son Jesus Christ, the true Word and Wisdom; who with thee and the Holy Spirit livest and reignest, ever one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
John Calvin (1509-1564), the Reformation's leading theologian, died on May 27, 1564. Calvin’s legacy flourished in North America where most Americans, starting with the New England Puritans and continuing through the founding generation, identified with Calvinist denominations. pic.twitter.com/6zKDgYJUOK
