Seasoned With Jesus

Interesting quote- John Calvin citing Bernard of  Clairvaux:
Bernard’s admonition is worth remembering: The name of Jesus is not only light but also food; it is also oil, without which all food of the soul is dry; it is salt, without whose seasoning whatever I set before us is insipid; finally, it is honey in the mouth, melody in the ear, rejoicing in the heart, and at the same time medicine. Every discourse in which his name is not spoken is without savor 

  -John Calvin, The Institutes of the Christian Religion II.16.
