Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 29th September

To Glorify Christ Jesus

He shall glorify me: for he shall take what is mine, and declare it to you. (John 16:14)

The Holy Ghost Himself cannot better glorify the Lord Jesus than by showing to us Christ’s own things. Jesus is His own best commendation. There is no adorning Him except with his own gold.

The Comforter shows us that which He has received of our Lord Jesus. He has a way of opening our minds and of opening the Scriptures, and by this double process He sets forth our Lord to us. He shows us the things themselves and this is a great privilege.

Let us seek the illumination of the Spirit; not to gratify our curiosity, nor even to bring us personal comfort, but to glorify the Lord Jesus. Oh, to have worthy ideas of Him; to have such vivid impressions of His person, and work, and glory that we may with heart and soul cry out to His praise! Where there is a heart enriched by the Holy Ghost’s teaching there will be a Saviour glorified beyond expression. Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly light, and show us Jesus our Lord!
