Id like to know your thoughts – maybe ;)

In the last few weeks I’ve been thinking lots about the Holy Spirit. Paul says that we should NOT grieve the Holy Spirit – so what does this mean? How do we grieve or even blaspheme the Holy Spirit? I don’t want to do either of these, so I’m interested to know what you think it means to grieve & or blaspheme hhe Holy Spirit. Pls leave a comment ๐Ÿ™‚



Nice question. The thing that stands out when I read your question is the emotion behind the word. By definition, it speaks about suffering and pain due to a mishap or trouble. So my inward question is โ€ฆwhat is it that I am doing or saying that causes anguish to the Holy Spirit? Then it makes me ask why do we suffer anguish? It is that the Holy Spirit knows the plans that the Father has for me and it causes anguish when my actions and words do not line up with or support that heavenly plan? Could it be as simple, yet as powerful as that?

My take on this is when we “greive” the Holy Spirit, we arent walking in the spirit as we should. And therefore, when we greive, so does our spirit. (I might be wrong, but this is how I see it.) ๐Ÿ™‚

It seems that Judas and the ones who should have a millstone placed around their necks and be drowned in the depths of the sea may have done something unpardonable. Maybe these examples have something to do with the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.

It is written in the book of Matthew;

2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Do you think that new believer would be the same as a little child in the sight of God? Maybe it has something to do with mis-guiding a new believer?
