We must be taught of God

We must be taught of God


John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Four things are absolutely necessary to be experimentally known and felt before we can arrive at any saving or sanctifying knowledge of the truth—

1. Divine light in the understanding.

2. Spiritual faith in the heart.

3. Godly fear in the conscience.

4. Heavenly love in the affections.

Without light we cannot see. Without faith we cannot believe. Without godly fear we cannot reverentially adore. Without love we cannot embrace Him who is the way, the truth, and the life. We must be taught of God and receive the kingdom of heaven as a little child—or we shall never enter therein.
