Fire Scripture:
Judges 16:1-6 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
Samson Goes to the City of Gaza
16 One day Samson went to the city of Gaza. He saw a prostitute there and went in to stay the night with her. 2 Someone told the people of Gaza, “Samson has come here.” They wanted to kill him, so they surrounded the city. They hid near the city gate and waited all night for him. They were very quiet all night long. They had said to each other, “When morning comes, we will kill Samson.”
3 But Samson only stayed with the prostitute until midnight. Then he got up and grabbed the doors of the city gate and pulled them loose from the wall. He pulled down the doors, the two posts, and the bars that lock the doors shut. He put them on his shoulders and carried them to the top of the hill near the city of Hebron.
Samson and Delilah
4 Later, Samson fell in love with a woman named Delilah, who was from Sorek Valley.
5 The rulers of the Philistines went to Delilah and said, “We want to know what makes Samson so strong. Try to trick him into telling you his secret. Then we will know how to capture him and tie him up. Then we will be able to control him. If you do this, each one of us will give you 28 pounds of silver.”
6 So Delilah said to Samson, “Tell me why you are so strong. How could someone tie you up and make you helpless?”

Message:
The Holy Spirit can be grieved. He can also depart from a believer.

Being sensitive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, obeying His instructions and living in His will consistently increases His presence in a believer's life significantly.

Conversely, living in sin, unrighteousness and willful disobedience reduces His presence. If a believer persists in wilful sin and disobedience, the Holy Spirit will completely depart from him or her.

A Christian without the Holy Spirit will experience avoidable and needless pain, become a prey to the enemy and live a miserable and unfulfilled life. It is important for you to know how the Holy Spirit can be grieved. Such a vital knowledge will help you from making that grievous mistake.

Samson was a judge in Israel. His birth was announced by an angel. God endowed him with supernatural strength and his ministry gave Israel dominion over the Philistines, their arch enemies. The exploits of Samson were engineered by the Holy Spirit.

However, Samson constantly grieved the Spirit of God. He lived a careless, carnal, immoral, impure and disobedient life. He touched the carcass of an animal, lusted after unbelieving women and committed immorality with impunity. He broke his Nazarine vows and covenants with God willfully and consistently.

Eventually, he let out the secret of his unusual divine strength to Delilah. The seven locks of hair on his head were cut and he lost the Holy Spirit, his unusual anointing and ministry.

Apart from disobedience, character defects and ungodly lifestyles of pride, strife, covetousness, defiling the body (the temple of the Spirit) and arrogating the glory that belongs to God to oneself can make the Holy Spirit depart from a Christian.

Beloved, the Bible says that the things that are written are for our learning. Make Christlikeness your goal and let your life glorify God always. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit!

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Genesis 25-26
