Unite My Heart

John_Calvin“As soon as we encounter some minor persecution, we put on another face, as we say, not wanting to be recognized as what we wish to be. Where does that impulse come from? From Satan, who wishes to attack us from one side, while the world, our physical comforts, and our worldly conveniences assail us from the other.” John Calvin, Sermons on Acts 1-7, p. 167.

“Not wanting to be recognized as what we wish to be” is a problem.
