We can see similar challenges in our churches. New ideas may challenge the status quo and often these ideas get rained on or squashed. Instead of dismissing new or different ideas, we should look at them to see if they are good and aligned with God's teaching. God may move the Spirit through our lives, shaking things up so we and His Church can grow and reach out. As long as the excitement, enthusiasm, and ideas are focused on rejoicing, praying, working for good, and avoiding evil, we shouldn't quench the moving Spirit!
Don't rain on the parade, seek God's will and be moved by His Holy Spirit!
Thank You for giving me the Holy Spirit in my life. Help me to always know Your will and allow myself to be moved by Your Holy Spirit. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
