Grieve not the Holy Spirit
Grieve not the Holy Spirit
‘And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.’
Suggested Further Reading:
Grieving the Holy Spirit produces a lamentable result.
In the child of God it will not lead to his utter destruction,
for no heir of heaven can perish; neither will the Holy Spirit be utterly taken away from him, for the Spirit of God is given to abide with us for ever.
But the ill-effects are nevertheless most terrible.
You will lose, my dear friends, all sense of the Holy Spirit’s presence: he will be as one hidden from you—no beams of comfort, no words of peace, no thoughts of love—there will be what Cowper calls, ‘an aching void the world can never fill.’
Grieve the Holy Spirit, and you will lose all Christian joy;
the light shall be taken from you, and you shall stumble in darkness; those very means of grace which once were such a delight, shall have no music in your ear.
Your soul shall be no longer as a watered garden, but as a howling wilderness. Grieve the Spirit of God, and you will lose all power; if you pray, it will be a very weak prayer—you will not prevail with God. When you read the Scriptures, you shall not be able to lift the latch and force your way into the inner mysteries of truth.
When you go up to the house of God, there shall be none of that devout exhilaration, that running without weariness,
that walking without fainting.
You shall feel yourself like Samson when his hair was lost, weak, captive, and blinded. Let the Holy Spirit depart,
and assurance is gone, doubts follow, questionings and suspicions are aroused.
Grieve the Spirit of God, and usefulness will cease:
the ministry shall yield no fruit; your Sunday School work shall be barren; your speaking to others and labouring for others shall be like sowing the wind.
If it is unprofitable for us to cause our church leaders to grieve, (Hebrews 13:17), how much worse it must be for us if we cause our God to grieve (Hebrews 3:7–18).
Sermon no. 738
3 March (1867)
If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,
you can be accepted in to his kingdom.
I invite you to let him to make of you, what He always wanted.
Marvelous God Almighty, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin, I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free, I confess that He is the son of God. I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven. In the precious name of Jesus I ask. Amen..

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, not in its fashion and manner, but in the truth which it contains.
