I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior on January I3, 1986. Since that life-changing day, I have heard, read about and observed many spiritual struggles in Christians' lives, including Christian leaders, such as pastors, evangelists. missionaries, deacons, teachers, elders, administrators, and bishops.

I feel strongly in my spirit that many are grieving the Holy Spirit in more ways than one, and I am no exception. The list of how we are grieving the Spirit is exhaustive; however, I will mention some key areas where we have been failing consistently:

1. Not loving God as we ought

2. Not fearing God as we ought

3. Turning God into a God of Convenience

4. Not reading the Word (Bible) daily

5. Failing to pray for self and others

6. Breaking promises

7. Not tithing regularly

8. Being a false witness

9. Choosing to be selfish and self-centered

10. Not being thankful and not showing appreciation

I I. Taking God and others for granted

12. Presenting ourselves as holy and righteous

13. Judging others constantly

14. Entertaining and encouraging gossip

15. Not practicing humility

The Holy Spirit inspired me to write this book first to myself as an eye-opening experience. Yet, I realize I am not the only one dealing with the issues mentioned above. Thousands of people (possibly more) may be experiencing the same things I have been facing. Therefore, let us learn to be patient, kind, tolerant, and understanding of one another, and instead of judging one another in an ungodly manner, let us learn to appreciate, respect, and accept each other, despite our disagreements and differences.

With that in mind, consider the following Scripture Verse from the New Testament: "And do nor grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption" (Ephesians 4:30). Thank You and God Bless.
