Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God

One of the things by which the Holy Spirit of God can be grieved is, because a person is not walking correctly in the way of the Lord, doing things that are not pleasing to God.

Many are immature in the faith, others because do not know who the Holy Spirit of God is, nor do they know its definition, and that is why we must teach the new believers and those who do not yet know about the Holy Spirit of God. That is why we should study the Holy Word of God, because in it we will find the answers to our doubts.

And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

Ephesians 4:30

The Holy Spirit of God was left to be with us every day until the Son comes for His people, as Jesus said before going to the Father.

He left His Holy Spirit, so that in difficult moments He will encourage us, give us strength, so that He will give us an understanding of His Word. Jesus left His Holy Spirit because He knew that we would have weaknesses at some point, John 14:26 says “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you”.

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

Ephesians 4:31

When we come to Christ everything must change in our lives, and this is because the Holy Spirit is in us, and if it is in us all anger, all malice, anger, screaming, bitterness, it has to go away because the Holy Spirit brings joy to our lives.

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Ephesians 4:32

And that is why we must have love, peace, mercy with others, be kind, compassionate, and forgive everyone who has offended us, because the Father also forgave us, and we must help anyone who does not have any of these fruits already mentioned, so that they too can be saved and the Holy Spirit can dwell in their lives.

    Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God
    =======================
    From the moment we hear the Word of God, the Holy Spirit acts in us and gives us faith to believe, we feel that we have transgressed the Law of God. He gives us the gift of repentance and leads us to Jesus, so that we are cleansed of our sins and receive the peace of God.

    Then a change must happen in our lives, because the holy Spirit of God abides in our souls.

    The word of God teaches us that God is pure and holy. We are called to be holy and leave behind our former way of living. If we act against the Law of God, the Spirit that abides in us is grieved.
    This is Paul’s advice, that tells us:

    “And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”

    “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

    And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
    (Ephesians 4:30-32)

    When we are believers in Jesus Christ and his gospel of salvation, really we are different people and have another family: we now belong to God’s family, as adopted children of God.

    If we read above what Paul says to believers and think a little about it, our behaviour ought to change indeed; our conscience will let us know when we fail because the Spirit of God is grieved.

    We are poor people in spirit: Jesus knows that. And he is always ready to help us, to pardon our sins. But it is a serious thing to be children of God, a God who loves us and hates sin.

    We need to be close to Him every day of our lives, with all prayer and supplication, so that we are not conformed to this world and its evil works, but have our minds renewed and transformed, lest we grieve the Holy Spirit of God.

    “And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
    (Romans 12:2)

    May we all, brothers in Jesus Christ, follow the teaching of God’s Word, in order to please our Father who is in Heaven and avoid grieving his Holy Spirit. Amen
