Ungodly Conversation Grieves the Holy Spirit

In the Bible passage starting in Ephesians 4:29 and continuing on to 5:4, much is said about one's conversation. "Let no unwholesome word procede from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, that it may give grace to those who hear."

Skipping down to verse 31 we are told, among other things, to not slander another person. This means to not talk about them in a way that demeans their character.

In the next chapter there is a warning to "not let immorality or any impurity or greed, even be named among you...and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or course jesting..." (5:3-4)

Now, go back to verse 4:30. It reads, "And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption." Because this verse is right in the middle of all of these verses dealing with one's speech, it is safe to say that we can grieve God's Holy Spirit by not guarding our conversations, and by bad attitudes toward others that are reflected in wrongful speech.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Good morning brother. Very good point. We are to be a light unto the world by our behavior. That more than anything will lead others to Christ. God bless you.
