Thought of the Day May 4, 2023 Do not quench the Spirit

By 10:03 AM

 In 1 Thessalonians Paul writes: "Do not quench the Spirit." Rather, he says to "test the Spirit", in other words to discern whether this is of God or not. We have all been baptized in the Holy Spirit, as Jesus promised. But do we live by the Spirit and follow the Spirit's lead, as Paul advises? How often has the grace of the Holy Spirit moved upon us and we failed to act on it? Either we were not attentive, or we didn't believe it. But we didn't test to see if it was the Holy Spirit's urging. Repent of any past failures in this regards. Ask the Spirit to help you to be more open and responsive to his activity in you. Learn to discern what is of God and not and then act according. "Do not quench the Spirit."
