If the Holy Spirit is in us, what happens while we are committing a sinful act? Does the Father turn away from us?

In an episode of Ask Me Anything with Biblical scholar Dr. Michael Brown, he answers this question sent by Chris via email. Before answering the question, he explains that this question has some mysteries. He then continued to cite some references in the Scripture to explain his opinion about this question.

In 1 Corinthians chapter 6, Paul wrote that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit. In John 14, it is written that the Lord won’t leave us as orphans. And in Matthew 28, stated how the Lord will always be with us. Yet, in Ephesians 4, we are warned that we should grieve the Holy Spirit.

Sinning

To simply put it, Dr. Michael answered the question by emphasizing how the Holy Spirit is always with us, even as we sin. When we do fall short, we are grieving Him that is in us.

“If God looked away every single moment that we ever sin, then He’d be looking away constantly… The Holy Spirit is there and we are grieving Him,” Dr. Michael said.

The only thing that we can do that will make the Lord turn away from us is when we reject Him when we reject His grace.

“When we reject His grace, He will reject us,” he added. “But otherwise, as His children, I believe that we are grieving the Spirit when we sin knowingly and willingly.”
