I feel that some explanation is needed in the meaning behind the blog title “Quench the Flame.”

Jesus said in his famous sermon on the mount that those who hunger and thirst for righteousness will be filled (Matthew 5:6). However, it is obvious to anyone who has ever felt the quenching power of the Spirit that the desire grows, the hunger pangs get sharper, and the fire rages stronger. If you have a candle-flame inside you, YHWH* wants you to burn like a blazing forest fire. YHWH* alone can quench the flame, yet each time he quenches, the fire grows stronger. This is one of the many paradoxical ways in which YHWH* works in the lives of those who seek him.

Seek out ways to quench the flame inside.

*YHWH is the name given for the god of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
