More from Ephesians

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed . . .
Ephesians 4:30

Something I’ve known almost from Day One as a Christian is that God’s Spirit lives in me and in every Christian.

But that’s still hard to get a grip on. I do think if we (I) were more aware that the Holy Spirit really lives in us, we would be a lot more sensitive about what we do or say. God has so lavished His grace on us that He even lives in us by His Spirit. So why would we ever want to do anything that would grieve that Spirit Who so loves us, Who is closer than close?
