Daily Readings - John 10:31-42

J.C. Ryle, Daily Readings
John 10:31-42

What high honour Jesus Christ puts on the Holy Scriptures! We find him using a text ut of the Psalms as an argument against his enemies, in which the whole poiint lies in the single word 'gods'. And then, having quoted the text, he lays down the great principle: 'The Scripture cannot be broken.' 

The principle here laid down by our Lord is one of vast importance . . . The principle before us, no doubt, is rudely assaulted in the present day. Let no Christian's heart fail because of these assaults. Let us stand our ground manfully and defend the principle of plenary inspiration as we would the apple of our eye. There are difficulties in Scripture, we need not shrink from conceding, things hard to explain, hard to reconcile and hard to understand. But in almost all these difficulties, the fault, we may justly suspect, is not so much in Scripture as in our own weak minds. In all cases we may well be content to wait for more light and believe that all shall be made clear at last.
