A Good Word from John Calvin on Spiritual Warfare

“We have been forewarned
that an enemy relentlessly threatens us,
an enemy who is the very embodiment
of rash boldness,
of military prowess,
of crafty wiles,
of untiring zeal and haste,
of every conceivable weapon
and of skill in the science of warfare.

We must, then, bend our every effort to this goal:
That we should not let ourselves be overwhelmed
by carelessness or faintheartedness,
but, on the contrary, with courage rekindled stand our ground in combat.”
