Law: the need for the Spirit

Friday, September 11, 2015
    But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.
    —John 16:13-15 (NIV)
    Read what chapter, or doctrine of Scripture you will, be ever so delighted with it, it will leave you as poor, as empty and unreformed as it found you, unless it be a delight that proceeds from, and has turned you wholly and solely to the Spirit of God, and strengthened your union with, and dependence upon him.
    ... William Law (1686-1761), An Humble, Earnest, and Affectionate Address, to the Clergy, Edinburgh: Guthrie and Tait, 1817, p. 2-3 (see the book)
    See also John 16:13-15; Neh. 9:20; Ps. 1:2; 119:11; 37:31; John 15:26-27; 16:7-11; Col. 3:16; 2 Tim. 3:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your words convict my heart.
