Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

May 27, 2011 (share the glory)

share the glory

“God has ordained that the eye-opening work of His Spirit
always be combined with the mind-informing work of His Word.
His aim is that we see the glory of His Son (and be changed).
So He opens our eyes when we are looking at the Son –
and not at soaps or sales.
The work of the Spirit and the work of the Word
always go together in God’s way of true spiritual self-revelation.
The Spirit’s work is to show the glory and beauty
and value of what the mind sees in the Word.”
- John Piper

“God must open the eyes of our understanding
before we can truly know and rightly interpret His truth.
His truth is available only to those
with a regenerate spirit and in whom His Spirit dwells,
for only the Spirit can illumine Scripture.
Just as the physically blind cannot see the sun,
the spiritually blind cannot see the Son.
Both lack proper illumination.
- John MacArthur

“That book in many’s eyes doth share the glory
That in gold clasps locks in the golden story.”
- William Shakespeare
