1. Giving grace to people...What all gives
grace? Obviously the things we talked about
last week. (By the way a verse that's
applicable to last week would have been Ecc
12:10-11). But what one other thing gives
grace as well? Telling man of their sin...
But do you see how giving grace in telling
man of their sin must also be done with
grace. What unfortunately is some peoples'
reaction to being told of their sin?
2. How do we grieve the Holy Spirit? Could
this mean grieving the Holy Spirit in others
as well? What does it mean to grieve the
Holy Spirit? What is the result of grieving
the Holy Spirit? See Is 63:10 also. What
does this mean? Is this the same kind of
thing implied here? See 1 Thess 5:19. What
else grieves the Holy Spirit?
3. What are some other things that you can
do to the Holy Spirit? Note the following
things you can do to the Holy Spirit: Acts
5:9, Acts 7:51, Heb 10:29 and Matt 12:31-32.
Teacher's note: Tested Acts 5:9, resisted
Acts 7:51, insulted Heb 10:29 and blasphemed
4. What does "sealed by the Holy Spirit for
the day of redemption" mean? Can we become
unsealed? Is this a 'post-acceptance of
Christ' action? What is the day of
redemption? Are you sure that's the answer?
See Eph 1:13-14, Rom 8:23 and I Corr 1:30
does this change any of your previous
answers? What about Ps. 51:11? Is Paul
saying that we should avoid sin to keep our
salvation? Who secures our salvation?
