“The way to be filled with the Spirit is to let God’s word dwell in you richly. We will be more and more filled with the Spirit as we are more and more filled with Scripture.” (Richard B. Gaffin, Jr., The Work of the Holy Spirit, p. 31).
“. . . the Scriptures are especially serviceable for this purpose — to raise up those who are prepared by patience, and strengthened by consolations, to the hope of eternal life, and to keep them in the contemplation of it.” (John Calvin, Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans, at Rom. 15:4).
