Reading: “And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption”—Ephesians 4:30
Before a Christian can engage in sin he must first disregard the reason of the Spirit and oppose His influence! The Spirit loves you; you are His temple, His dwelling place! He witnesses to you and imprints the image of His own holy character on you. What can grieve Him more than ignoring His counsel? Christian, you cannot sin without first disregarding the reason of the Spirit. Listen to the Spirit, your Comforter, because His comfort not only will calm you in times of distress, it will keep you from sin.
