Quenching The Holy Spirit

August 13, 2013

“Do not quench the Spirit.” - 1 Thessalonians 5:19 

The Spirit of God is like a fire that refines and empowers. When we allow sin to remain in our lives, it is as if we are pouring water on the power of God. When we live in sin as believers, we hinder having our prayers answered; we cut off His blessings; we cause others to stumble, and we lose reward in heaven

Are you quenching the Holy Spirit? Are you following God at a guilty distance? Does God seem distant to you? 

My friend, God is longing for you to come home. He stands with arms wide-open, ready and waiting, to receive you with His arms of love. Today, it’s time to come home.
