When We Do Not Listen to the Voice of God.

Updated: Aug 12, 2019

Ephesians 4:30-32

And do not make the Holy Spirit sad. The Spirit is God’s proof that you belong to him. God gave you the Spirit to show that God will make you free when the final day comes. Do not be bitter or angry or mad. Never shout angrily or say things to hurt others. Never do anything evil. Be kind and loving to each other, and forgive each other just as God forgave you in Christ.


Jesus is described as "grieved" in Mark 3:5, but this is the only place in which the Spirit is mentioned as being able to grieve. In the case of Jesus, He was grieved by the "hardness of heart" in other people. Likewise, we can make the Holy Spirit sad, or disappointed, when we are stubborn and refuse to follow God's will in our lives—by not allowing ourselves to be led by Him, but choosing our own way instead.
