Don’t Quench The Spirit


Kristine Cucinotta Murphy

What means nothing to you, kept on the top shelf

Is a need and means everything to someone else

What is of no effort to you

To someone else, means they aren’t equipped to do

Your gift comes easy because it’s all the Holy Spirit

Don’t waste it away because you see it as insignificant

It’s not meant for you to have to strive

But it is meant for you to allow to go forth and come alive

To quench the Spirit is a sinful act

Only a vessel for God is truly fact

You produce nothing only a branch to bear fruit

To stop the flow of the Holy Spirit, hearts become hard and brute

Living for self, in your own will

Won’t you humble yourself and become still

Allow God to do his work through you

It’s the last thing you expected to have to do

It’s the thing that seems not important

Is the very thing in which God calls us to be obedient

To set aside our own works is tough

It feels like you aren’t doing enough

But, to be a follower of Jesus faithfully

It has to be All of God and None of me

Better check yourselves diligently

Make sure you’re allowing your gift to flow freely

Let us stop and remember to whom we belong

Make sure we haven’t been quenching the Spirit all along

How do we check ourselves to make certain

Fast, pray, study and train

God above all things, not what we want, think or moan

His thoughts and ways are not the same as our own

1 Thessalonians 5:19-25
Quench not the Spirit.

20 Despise not prophesyings.

21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

25 Brethren, pray for us.

26 Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.

27 I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.

28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

Now it shall be good for you to go to the Word and read the beginning of 1 Thessalonians 5.
Be blessed and be a blessing.
