Many Christians today think that as long as they don’t engage in “big” sins, that they are not grieving the Holy Spirit. Paul gives many Ethical Exhortations in the last part of chapter 4, subtle ways that Christians can grieve the Spirit of God. Everything from white lies, to stealing, speaking rotten words, bitterness are to be put away from us. We must cultivate a compassionate forgiving spirit. Paul not only tells us what not to do, but tells us the proper Gospel motivation we are to have in our obedience to Him.
