Grieve Not the Spirit

Sunday July 23, 2006

Texts: Eph. 4:29 and I Thess. 5:16. The Holy Spirit has a sensitive nature. It doesn’t take much to grieve or quench Him, nor to welcome Him. We grieve the Spirit when we suppress and try to control the ministry gifts and the Holy Spirit in someone. We must yield to the Spirit, because He wants to use us. We shouldn’t be afraid of the supernatural, nor allow the fear of failure to keep us in bondage. We stay in the Spirit and move in the Spirit by the hearing of faith (Gal. 3:2). Move on, not allowing the hurts of life to keep us from flowing in the Spirit.
