Do not grieve the Holy Spirit (Eph. 4:30)

“Do not grieve

The Holy Spirit

Of God,

With which you were marked

With a seal

For the day of redemption.”

καὶ μὴ λυπεῖτε τὸ Πνεῦμα τὸ Ἅγιον τοῦ Θεοῦ, ἐν ᾧ ἐσφραγίσθητε εἰς ἡμέραν ἀπολυτρώσεως.

Paul said, “Do not grieve (καὶ μὴ λυπεῖτε) the Holy Spirit (τὸ Πνεῦμα τὸ Ἅγιον) of God (τοῦ Θεοῦ), with which you were marked with a seal (ἐν ᾧ ἐσφραγίσθητε) for the day of redemption (εἰς ἡμέραν ἀπολυτρώσεως).”  Paul told the Christian people of Ephesus not to grieve the Holy Spirit by sinning.  Paul remined them that they had been sealed with the Holy Spirit during their baptismal initiation into Christianity.  Thus, this seal made them ready for the judgment day, the day of redemption, the end times.  Have you received the seal of the Holy Spirit?
