Then in verse 30, Paul says, “And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.” It is evident that the Holy Spirit longs to fill us so that God can accomplish His purposes in us for all eternity. Anything that hinders the Spirit’s desires for us is a grief to Him. Let this sink in!! If we understood this in a fuller way, we would be quick to “put off” attitudes and habits that have far too long cause the Holy Spirit to be grieved. Let us “put off” and be filled with HIM instead!
