Do Not Quench The Spirit – Part 6


The Scriptures tell us in 1 Corinthians 12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant.  In 1 Thessalonians 5:19 – 21 we are told, “Do not quench the Spirit.  Do not despise prophecies.  Test all things; hold fast what is good.”  From these passages of Scripture, we can readily see that the Lord does not want us to be in the dark when it comes the ministry of the Holy Spirit in His church today.  Jesus told us in the book of John 14:16-18 that He would be leaving but that He would send us another helper, the Holy Spirit.  Many in the church today do not understand the operation of the Holy Spirit.  In this series we are going to discover from the Scriptures the importance of a Holy Spirit filled church.  A church that has knowledge of the gifts of the Spirit.  A church that lives in intimate fellowship with the Holy Spirit and senses His promptings in ministering to the church and the world around them.  Let’s come together and desire, discover, and develop in the giftings of the Holy Spirit.


Part 6 – In this lesson we wrap up our study of the Body of Christ.  It is vital that we understand that we are not an island unto ourselves.  God has baptized every believer into one Spirit and set the members of His body where He desires.  We are called to not think to highly or lowly of ourselves concerning our position and function in His body.  As the body of Christ, we are called to glory in the Lord and love the body of Christ as our own body.  This truth being understood and walked in gives us a firm foundation to work from concerning the gifts of the Holy Spirit to His church.
