Moreover the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,…
I. THE UNIVERSAL NEED THERE IS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT'S INFLUENCE.
1. There was nothing under the law so holy, but that it needed this Divine unction.
2. Nor is there anything under the gospel which does not need it.
II. HIS SUFFICIENCY FOR ALL TO WHOM THAT INFLUENCE IS APPLIED. This appears —
1. From the preciousness of the ointment which was used.
2. From the virtue infused into everything anointed with it. Application —
(1) Seek the Holy Spirit for your own souls.
(2) Guard against everything that may reflect dishonour upon Him.
(C. Simeon, M. A.)
