Chadwick: learning without the Spirit

Monday, November 7, 2022
    Feast of Willibrord of York, Archbishop of Utrecht, Apostle of Frisia, 739
    [Jesus:] “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cummin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.”
    —Matthew 23:23-24 (NIV)
    Learning without the Holy Ghost blinds men to the realities of Divine truth.
    ... Samuel Chadwick (1860-1932), The Way to Pentecost, Hodder and Stoughton, 1932, p. 36 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 23:23-24; Isa. 9:16; Mal. 2:8; Matt. 15:13-14; Luke 6:39; John 5:39-40
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your Spirit teaches me.
