We are Not Our Own

We are not our own: let not our reason nor our will, 
therefore, sway our plans and deeds.
We are not our own: let us therefore not set it as our goal to 
seek what is expedient for us according to the flesh.
We are not our own: in so far as we can, 
let us therefore forget ourselves and all that is ours.

We are God's: let us therefore live for Him and die for Him
We are God's: let His wisdom and will therefore rule all our actions.
We are God's: let all the parts of our life accordingly
strive toward Him as our only lawful goal.

~ John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion ~
