Matthew Henry Monday (on Tuesday)

Every Monday ws harbor likes to dedicate a post to Matthew Henry. Nonconformist Henry (10/18/1662 – 06/22/1714) was a commentator on the Bible and Presbyterian minister of the Gospel. We highly recommend his works for both practical and devotional purposes.

Let the Spirit of truth guide us into all truth, and make us understand how we have gone astray.

Teach us what we do not see; and enable us to test everything, so as to hold fast to what is good.

Lord, grant that we may not be as children, tossed to and fro and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning; rather, speaking the truth in love, may we grow up in every way into Christ, who is the head.

Lord, give us so to do your will, as that we may know that the teaching is from God; and so to know the truth, as that the truth may set us free, may set us free indeed.

Enable us, we pray, to follow the pattern of sound words that we have heard in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus, and to continue in what we have learned and have firmly believed.
