The Necessary Work of the Spirit in Preaching

 As John Calvin pointed out in his Institutes, “The testimony of the Spirit is superior to reason. For as God alone can properly bear witness to his own words, so these words will not obtain full credit in the hearts of men, until they are sealed by the inward testimony of the Spirit…For though {Scripture} in its own majesty has enough to command reverence, nevertheless, it then begins truly to touch us when it is sealed in our hearts by the Holy Spirit.  Kent Edwards, Deep Preaching, Pg. 77.
