GRIEVE NOT THE SPIRIT
*by C. R. Stam *
The first lesson each believer in Christ should learn is that
immediately upon believing he is given everlasting life. Referring to
this fact Ephesians 1:13,14 says:
"In whom ye also trusted, having heard the word of truth, the gospel of
your salvation: in whom also having believed, ye were sealed with that
Holy Spirit of promise."
Mark well, the believer is not sealed by the Holy Spirit, but "with" the
Holy Spirit. The Spirit Himself is the seal. Every sincere believer in
Christ, then, should rejoice in an accomplished redemption and rest in
the fact that the Holy Spirit will keep him eternally safe.
But while we cannot lose the Holy Spirit we can, and often do, grieve
the Holy Spirit, as we read in Eph. 4:30. This is why we are told in
Rom. 8:26 that the Spirit "helpeth our infirmities" and makes
intercession for us, that we might live lives which please and honor God.
The wonderful fact is, however, that "nothing," not even an aggrieved
Spirit shall "separate us from the love of God" (Rom. 8:38,39). Thus in
the same breath with which the Apostle exhorts us not to grieve the
Spirit he again reassures us that this same Spirit keeps us eternally safe:
"And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the
day of redemption" (Eph. 4:30).
Does this encourage careless living? Those who think so have missed the
whole point of Paul's appeal. The Apostle does not warn the believer
that if he grieves the Spirit he will be lost. Rather, in grace he exhorts:
"Do not grieve the very Spirit who in mercy and love has sealed you as
forever His own. Do not repay such love with such ingratitude. "

2Co 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in
Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every
place.
"May God, Whose grace is irresistible and
all sufficient, be glorified!" *
