What is the greatest spiritual gift?
Wisdom is regarded as the earliest and most important of the gifts. It affects the intellect as well as the will. It both illumines the mind and instills an inclination to the divine, according to St. Bernard. “The latter is a view taken by the mind, while the former is an experience undergone by the heart; one is light, the other love, and so they connect and complete one another,” Adolphe Tanquerey OP defined the distinction between wisdom and understanding. The theological virtue of charity is perfected by a wise and compassionate heart.
What does the Bible say about quenching the Spirit?
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's wish for you in Christ Jesus, according to 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. We live counter-culturally with delight in the face of opposition when the Spirit is sparked in our lives.
What does it mean to pray in the Holy Ghost?
