DAY 24: Do Not Quench The Holy Spirit

Do Not Quench The Holy Spirit

Grieving The Holy Spirit is bad enough, but quenching Him is even much worse. Some Bible translations use “put out” for the word “quench.” Cutting off the Holy Spirit all together is a most serious sin strongly to be avoided

Scriptures:

1 Thessalonians 5:19 (NIV)
Do not put out the Spirit’s fire…

Hebrews 10:29 (NIV)
How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God under foot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of Grace?

Prayer:

Holy Spirit, forgive me for the times I quenched Your fire intentionally or unintentionally. Please have mercy on me for Jesus’ sake. Make me aware of how I may grieve or quench You and help me to always avoid doing so. Make me very sensitive to You, Holy Spirit, and anoint and empower me to “flow” with You at all times and in all places to God’s glory, honor and praise in Jesus’ Name. Amen
