“And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.” Ephesians 4: 30
The Holy Ghost is the person behind the office, God; He has a personality. He is so gentle and by virtue of that He can be hurt.
One of the common sin believers commit against the Holy Spirit is to grieve Him. When He is grieved, He will be present but inactive in a believer’s life.
Right after admonishing us not to grieve the Holy Ghost, the scriptures reveal the things that grieve the Holy Spirit in the verses following our opening scripture (Ephesians 4:31-32). Things like bitterness, wrath, strife, anger, clamour, evil speaking and all malice. These things grieve the Holy Spirit and deactivate His presence in our lives.
To have a sweet, continuous fellowship with the HolySpirit, the Word teaches us to get rid of such attitudes and give them no place in us. The armour of light cannot be activated without the Holy Ghost. Therefore, repent today in any way you have grieved the Spirit and let Him flood your heart with the light of God words.

I hereby cast off the works of darkness, and I put on the armour of Light, as I consecrate my body, soul and spirit to you today. Let me life bring you glory now and always. Amen.
