Matthew Henry Monday


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

To lead me into and keep me in the way of truth; and if in anything I am in error, to rectify my mistake.

Let the Spirit of truth guide me into all truth, John 16:13 and make me understand how I have gone astray. Job 6:24

Teach me what I do not see; Job 34:32 and enable me to test everything, so as to hold fast to what is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:21

Lord, grant that I may not be as a child, tossed to and fro and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning; rather, speaking the truth in love, may I grow up in every way into Christ, who is the head. Ephesians 4:14-15

Lord, give me so to do your will, as that I may know that the teaching is from God; John 7:17 and so to know the truth, as that the truth may set me free, John 8:32 may set me free indeed. John 8:36

Enable me, I pray, to follow the pattern of sound words that I have heard in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus, 2 Timothy 1:13 and to continue in what I have learned and have firmly believed. 2 Timothy 3:14
