Sanctification Place Growth
by G. C. Morgan

G.C. Morgan

I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come (John 16:12).

G. Campbell Morgan reminds us of our responsibility "in finding out whether or not we are true to the thing about which we are absolutely certain, and convinced." God will not reveal new truth to those who have disobeyed the truth received. 

Where is the blessedness I had,
When first I found the Lord?

If we were true to Jesus Christ the blessedness of this morning would eclipse in its glory any blessedness that preceded it. The trouble is that we are content not to know the deep things of God, to live upon the surface of things. I have heard people say that they will be quite content if they get just inside heaven. Just to get inside is pure selfishness. Oh that there might come upon us the passion to know the deep things of God, to look into the midst with eyes intense in their longing, until we see it disappear, and the light break. Oh, to ponder the things He has said until we hear their clamant call, and obey. He will lead us on into deeper things, and higher things, and better things.

Surely if we hear Him say, "I have many things to say unto you, but ye cannot hear them now," we ought to reply, "Oh, Master, prepare us to receive them. Bring us back to the point where we were disobedient." You know where you lost the line of your development. Something He told you to do, and you have not done it, though the years have rolled away. Something He told you to cease doing, and you are still doing it. some call to truth disobeyed. Back to it, my brother, this morning, back to the point of your disobedience, and there obey (The Westminster Pulpit, Vol. 2, pp. 109-110).

He [the Holy Spirit] shall glorify Me; for He shall take of Mine, and shall disclose it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said again a little while, and you will see Me )John 16:14-16).
