Grieving the Spirit


Church Family,

Grief, it’s a terrible word. At worst, we experience this when someone dies. At best, when someone causes us sorrow. Is it possible to be around people and yet be lonely? Is it possible to cause God sorrow?

Ephesians 4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

What could possibly cause us to grieve God?

V. 25 Lying about and to others. V26 Uncontrolled Anger, holding grudges, not seeking reconciliation with others. V28 laziness v29 foul mouthed, tearing down speech. V31 bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, slander, malice v32 unforgiving.

When we follow a spirit other than the Holy Spirit, it grieves God. If this is you, then take comfort in the fact that God longs to be with you. God wants us, not because we are so special, but because of who He is.
