TOPIC: Do Not Grieve The Holy Spirit

READ: Ephesians 4:30-32 (NKJV)

  1. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
  2. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.
  3. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.


The Holy Spirit is the promise made to believers by Christ before His ascension to heaven. This was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost when the disciples were baptized with the Holy Spirit and got empowered for service. In John 14:17, Jesus again spoke about Him saying “…The Spirit of truth whom the world cannot receive because it neither sees Him nor knows Him, but you know Him for He dwells with you and will be in you.” The Holy Spirit lives inside the believer to teach, guide, inform, comfort, reveal hidden matters, convict, empower for service, etc. His role in the life of a child of God is unquantifiable. No child of God can function acceptably without Him. He has emotions and operates in an environment of love, gentleness, peace, patience, compassion and forgiveness. If any life does not provide a conducive environment for Him, He becomes grieved and leaves. This was the case with Samson in Judges 16:20.

Therefore, put off behaviors like anger, stubbornness, unbelief of any part of God’s word, bitterness, rage, immorality, greed, slander, malice and disobedience from your life, because they will definitely grieve Him. When you put these off, you will enjoy His presence and operations in your life.

PRAYER: Father, may I never grieve Your Holy Spirit with my body, spirit and soul in Jesus’ name, Amen.
