“Simply as pilgrims” by John Calvin

“We should pray to God to renew us and to strengthen us by His Holy Spirit, and to increase His gifts in us more and more, so that in passing through this world, we may always aim at that mark, and be here simply as pilgrims, in order that our Lord may confess us as His children, and keep for us the heritage which He has promised us and bought so dearly for us by the death and passion of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

–John Calvin, Sermons on Ephesians (1562; repr. Edinburgh: Banner of Truth Trust, 1998), 287.
