Calvin on Worship

"The power of the Spirit was necessary…..   The mass… was rendered stable…by the secret efficacy of the Spirit….    The Spirit moved…over the waters…to prevent its speedy dissolution….

"Moses now for the first time introduces God in the act of speaking…the Word….   John [1:3] testifies that ‘without Him nothing was made’….   The world had been begun by the same efficacy of the Word by which it was completed….   Since by the Word of God things which were not, suddenly came in being — we ought…to infer the eternity of His essence….   All things have been created by Him….   He is the Wisdom…without Whom God could never be."
