Quotes to Consider:
John Calvin on Philippians 3:10: "But as it is not enough to know
Christ as crucified and raised up from the dead, unless you
experience, also, the fruit of this, he speaks expressly of efficacy.
Christ therefore is rightly known, when we feel how powerful his death
and resurrection are, and how efficacious they are in us. Now all
things are there furnished to us—expiation and destruction of sin,
freedom from condemnation, satisfaction, victory over death, the
attainment of righteousness, and the hope of a blessed immortality."
