Thomas Manton: Scripture & Spirit

Do you pray as you read Scripture, that the Spirit of God might open the Word to you? The puritan pastor Thomas Manton reminds us of the vital role of the Spirit of God in illuminating the Scriptures for us.

“A sundial may be well set, yet if the sun shine not upon it, we cannot tell the time of the day. The Scriptures are sufficient to make us wise, but without the light of the Spirit how do we grope at noon-day!”

— from a sermon on Psalm 119:5
