Yet, Calvin rightly understood that the best way to let the Spirit do His life-giving work is to teach more Scripture, not less.  Remember that the Spirit gave us the Word to begin with and that He is present in power whenever the Word is truly and faithfully preached.  The way to experience the Spirit’s work, therefore, is not through some experience apart from Scripture but by hearing His voice in the reading and preaching of the Spirit’s very own Word. – Philip Graham Ryken (born in 1966)
