“What a sacrament is”

A sacrament is an external sign by which the Lord depicts and bears witness to his good will towards us, in order to support the weakness of our faith.

To put it more briefly and clearly, a sacrament is an expression of the grace of God declared by an external sign.

—John Calvin, Truth For All Time
