To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
The glory of God is His very presence. His glory is in us because He has given us the Holy Spirit. It is His very presence, the anointing of God, that removes the burdens and destroys the yokes of bondage from off of our lives. For us to experience the power of God’s presence working in our life there are three things we should not do. Do not quench, resist, nor grieve the Holy Spirit.
To quench the Holy Spirit is like putting water upon a fire and putting out that fire. There are believers whom scripture tells us have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof. Quenching the Spirit is choosing to willfully live a life of disobedience toward God. When we do the Holy Spirit is being quenched by our lifestyle and we are denying His work in changing our lives.
This can lead to resisting the Holy Spirit, which means as the Spirit of God now tries to lead us away from wrong living by the inward witness we resist Him. The more we do our conscience is seared and becomes numb to the inward witness of the Spirit, and He then becomes grieved because we are no longer responsive to Him. So don’t quench, resist, nor grieve the Holy Spirit of God. Yield to the Holy Spirit within, being obedient to His promptings, and this will help you to walk in the awareness of His glorious presence that removes burdens and destroys yokes of bondage.
