The Mourning Dove

This week we sought to understand what it means to grieve the Holy Spirit. By becoming more sensitive to the Spirit and identifying those things which grieve the Spirit, we can remove them from our life in order to create a habitat and dwelling place for the Spirit.  Let’s read what the Bible says…

“Do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.” (Ephesians 4:30-32, NLT).

How is it possible to not be grieved by the things that grieve the Lord? Could it be that you have lost our sensitivity (Ephesians 4:19)? In laymen’s terms it means you’re not troubled by the things that trouble God. You aren’t sensitive to the things which break the heart of God. We must find out what pleases the Lord (5:10) and have nothing to do with shameful works (5:11-12). It’s time to wake up, walk in wisdom, and make most of every opportunity because the days are evil (5:14-16). Finally, we must be filled with the Spirit (5:18).
