I love this quote. It is so easy in our thinking to divorce the Spirit from the Word. But Jesus promised the apostles that the Holy Spirit would bring to their remembrance everything He said and taught them. Thus, we have the promise that with the words the apostles wrote down, we have the words of the Holy Spirit Himself. You can't get more spiritual than that, can you?
