“For the Lord Loves Justice”

By | February 2, 2014

John Piper, Mark Dever and Wayne Grudem praising C.J. Mahaney.

“For the Lord loves justice; he will not forsake his saints.”
Psalm 37:28

“The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice. The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not slip.”
Psalm 37:30-31

“The meaning is, first, that the righteous speak honourably and reverently of the righteousness of God, that they may cherish in themselves and others, to a large extent, the knowledge and the fear of God; secondly, that both in their own affairs and those of others, they approve, without disguise or deceit, of what is just and reasonable, and are not given  to justify what is wrong under the colour and varnish of sophistry; and, finally, that they never depart from the truth. The source whence this integrity of heart proceed is, that the law of God has its seat in the heart; and it is it alone which prescribes the best rule of life and imbues the minds of men with the love of righteousness.”
-John Calvin, “Heart Aflame: Daily Readings From Calvin on the Psalms”,  page 114
