Filled With The Spirit

Filled With The Spirit Sermon Illustration

“Dr. Handley Moule, the great Anglican bishop of a past generation, used to say: ‘The difference between someone who is quenching the Spirit and someone who is allowing the Spirit to have free course in their life, is the difference between a well in which there is a spring of water choked, and a well in which the obstruction is removed so that the water springs up and fills the well.’ If we are choked by fears, resentments, indecision, self-centeredness, then we are suppressing the Holy Spirit who resides in us in order to free us” (B & H Publishing Group, Every Day With Jesus Bible, Oct 21 entry).
