What Manner of Spirit

“And when His disciples James and John saw this they said, ‘Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?'”
“But He turned and rebuked them and said, ‘You do not know what manner of spirit you are of.'”
“For the Son of Man did not cone to destroy man’s lives but to save them.” Luke 9:54-56 NKJV

Sometimes my initial reaction  is to think something is bad, that God later shows me is good.

Thank You, Lord, for Your Holy Spirit that teaches and guides us always unto You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Oh Lord, humble me
and this flesh

that doesn’t know
You completely yet

nor what manner
of Spirit You are

that comes close to save
and not destroy from afar.

God bless you as He shows you what manner of Spirit you are of today!
