One key area of the Reformation that is often forgotten is that of the great revival of biblical piety, particularly as it manifested itself in the theology and lives of the Reformers and the Puritans. No one set forth what biblical piety is so succinctly and frequently as the Reformation’s greatest systematician, John Calvin (1509–1564).
God has called them, and sent them to speak to their fellow-men in his name. He has laid the obligation on them to take his messages as they are found written out in the Holy Oracles, and proclaim them aloud to the whole world.

Honestly, we are prone to doubt that prayer does any good, and then to slacken our praying, if we do not stop altogether. One reason is that we do not receive instant answers; our trials are often prolonged. Then doubt creeps in, hope fades, and God seems far away.
Believers have always been vulnerable to these temptations. Scripture meets them where they are with words of consolation and encouragement. Faith lays hold of them and perseveres through the night until the dawn of answered prayer.

Turn with me to the first chapter of the Book of the Acts to the Apostles. I shall read once more in your hearing the first twelve verses and then two verses from the latter part of the 24th chapter of the gospel of Luke. Both are written by Doctor Luke, guided by the Holy Spirit.

I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD
Our basic fault in relation to God is hard-heartedness. Sin has its own momentum. It is a boulder rolling downhill and picking up speed; only Omnipotence can stop it. The Lord mercifully reproves us that we may repent in time, and even if we won’t, His goodness and justice will be magnified all the more in our condemnation on Judgment Day.
