The article, “3 SURPRISING WAYS TO GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT”, by Kevin Deyoung states
“These three ways to grieve the Holy Spirit may be surprising because they correspond to the three ways in which the Spirit acts.”
This article talks about how we can misuse the grace of the Holy Spirit. One interested point, the third one is how we can sometimes think if we spend too much time on One Person of the Trinity, it may upset the other. This is farther from the truth. The articl correctly points out that the Holy Spirit shines upon the Son and finds great joy when we see this light upon Him.
The article also points out how we can try to subvert Scripture with our own supposed discourses with the Spirit. If anything subverts Scripture in our meditations with the Holy Spirit, then it is not obviously from the Holy Spirit.
Christian Counselors should take time and read this article and see if any of their spiritual children may be “grieving” the Holy Spirit,
