Richard Baxter on The Spirit and Study

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, October 31, 2011 at 8:00 AM


"It is not the work of the Spirit to tell you the meaning of Scripture, and give you the knowledge of divinity, without your own study and labour, but to bless that study, and give you knowledge thereby." ………"To reject study on pretence of the sufficiency of the Spirit, is to reject the Scripture itself; for as a man rejecteth his land that refuseth to till it, or rejecteth his meat if he refuse to eat it, though he praise it never so much; so doth he reject the Scripture that refuseth to study it, or to study that which must first be known, or is necessary thereto. Meditation diyesteth the word, which else is cast up again."
