Quotable

27 May

“In short, private piety arises out of public piety, not vice versa.  This emphasis on corporate worship included congregational singing, and the continuity of the covenant of grace in both Testaments gave the Psalms the prominence that they had in better days…for Calvin at least, piety is not just something that is taught; it is also “caught”: as we pray, so we believe (lex orandi, lex credendi). True doctrine is inculcated not only by direct instruction but also by the patterns of public worship and fellowship in the communion of saints in family life, and in everyday callings.”
-Michael Horton, from Calvin on the Christian Life (Crossway, 2014)
