The Holy Spirit—the great Teacher
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come,
he will guide you into all truth:
for he shall not speak of himself;
but whatsoever he shall hear,
that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”
Suggested Further Reading:
If I give myself to the Holy Spirit and ask his guidance,
there is no fear of my wandering.
Again, we rejoice in this Spirit because he is ever-present.
We fall into a difficulty sometimes; we say,
“Oh, if I could take this to my minister, he would explain it;
but I live so far off, and am not able to see him.”
That perplexes us, and we turn the text round and round and cannot make anything out of it. We look at the commentators. We take down pious Thomas Scott, and, as usual, he says nothing about it if it be a dark passage.
Then we go to holy Matthew Henry, and if it is an easy Scripture, he is sure to explain it; but if it is a text hard to be understood, it is likely enough, of course, left in his own gloom.
And even Dr Gill himself, the most consistent of commentators, when he comes to a hard passage, manifestly avoids it in some degree.
But when we have no commentator or minister, we have still the Holy Spirit. And let me tell you a little secret: whenever you cannot understand a text, open your Bible, bend your knee, and pray over that text; and if it does not split into atoms and open itself, try again.
If prayer does not explain it, it is one of the things God did not intend you to know, and you may be content to be ignorant of it. Prayer is the key that openeth the cabinets of mystery.
Prayer and faith are sacred keys that can open secrets, and obtain great treasures. There is no college for holy education like that of the blessed Spirit, for he is an ever-present tutor, to whom we have only to bend the knee, and he is at our side, the great expositor of truth.
We sometimes hold up our own spiritual education by failing to believe and obey what we have already been taught
(1 Corinthians 3:1-3; Hebrews 5:11-14).

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie,
not in its fashion and manner, but in the truth which it contains.”....
