TOPIC: GRIEVING THE HOLY SPIRIT (I)
Fire Scripture: Eph. 4:28-32
MFM Daily Devotional for Monday | Outline
To grieve means to make sad or sorrowful, to cause pain, grief or distress because of your actions. Grieving the Holy Spirit is a wilful action to prevent or oppose His leading by disobedience or rebellion. You can grieve the Holy Spirit by the way you live, talk or act. The Bible warns against using bad languages or getting involved in corrupt communications, anger, quarrels, harsh words and bad attitudes towards other.
You can also grieve the Holy Spirit when you use His name to excuse your sinfulness. Beloved, be careful not to grieve the Holy Spirit by your actions toward your brothers and sisters in Christ. 2 Tim. 3:16 says the whole Bible is God’s inspired word and, as a result of this, we should read it and apply it to our lives. Also 2 Pet. 1:21 says that “Holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” The message of the Bible is authentic and reliable.
MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR D.K OLUKOYA
When you now decide to choose what you will obey and what you will ignore, you are disobeying the Holy Spirit and this will make Him to be sad or be grieved. Half obedience is 100% disobedience to the Holy Spirit. Complete obedience is to do the will of God without compromise. So beloved, disobeying the Holy Spirit by not applying the word of God in your life amounts to grieving Him. 1 Jn. 2:20-27 affirms that you have unction from the Holy Spirit; and once you have Him, He will communicate the truth, which is Jesus. He will also guide you. He is sent to be your comforter.
But beloved, when you go against the leading of the Holy Spirit by shunning His directives, you grieve Him. You must place your total trust on Him, walk according to His direction and live as He wants you to live. The Holy Spirit is the power in your life; do not shun Him and think you can do without Him. Do not allow your own agenda to override His leading. Without Him you are nothing. So, beloved, when you shun the Holy Spirit, you grieve or make Him sad.
Isa. 63:10 – “But they rebelled, and vexed his Holy Spirit, therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.”
Never allow your pride to rob you of your ability to listen to the Holy Spirit.
Your life shall daily glorify God, in the name of Jesus.
MFM Daily Devotional | HYMN
- Begin In Me, Begin In Me
1. O Lord, in me Thy work revive,
Begin this very hour;
Oh, may my eyes in rapture see
Thy Spirit mighty power!
Begin in me, begin in me
Thy work of love and power
O Spirit of the living God,
Begin this very hour.
2. Thy weary church has waited long
May it not wait in vain;
Break thro’ the darksome clouds we dread,
And send refreshing rain.
3. Might but a shower of grace descend,
Our hearts would lose their gloom;
The barren hills would all rejoice,
The wilderness would bloom.
4. Oh help Thy people, one and all,
Thy promise to believe,and open
Thou our every heart
Thy blessing to receive
5. We seek, O Lord, Thy blessing now
With one prolonged desire;
Delay no longer, gracious God,
The Pentecostal fire.
