Quenching the Holy Spirit within the Body of Christ

TITLE: QUENCHING THE SPIRIT WITHIN THE BODY OF CHRIST
TEXT: 1 THES. 5:19

1. HINDERING MIGHTY WORK
A. DEFINITION: “Hindering work of Holy Spirit in Ministry (Life) in the Body of Christ”
B. DAMAGE: “Quenching the Spirit” in this passage relates to the corporal Body of Christ rather than individuals; however, since individuals comprise the Body of Christ obviously individuals collectively could quench or hinder the work of the Holy Spirit when assembled during a worship service. This is why the Apostle Paul gives this admonition to the CHURCH at Thessalonica!
