Meditating on how much the Lord Grieves over the sins of the mankind, since the time of Creation, and how His grief turned into Joy and Victory over the Cross.
(Lord's grief over the disobedience of Adam and Eve) Genesis 3:13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, What is this you have done?
(Lord's Grief over the Sin of Cain) Genesis 4:10 The Lord said, What have you done? Listen! Your brother's blood cries out to me from the ground.
(Lord's Grief over the Sins of the Mankind) Genesis 6:6 The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.
(Lord's grief over the sins of Israelites) Isaiah 63:10 Yet they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit. So he turned and became their enemy and he himself fought against them.
(Lord's grief over the sins of Jerusalem) Matthew 23:37-38 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate.
(Lord's grief over death of man) John 11:35-36 Jesus wept.Then the Jews said, See how he loved him!
(Lord's passion for His sufferrings over the cross) Mark 14:34 My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death, he said to them.
All these turned into the Joy of resurrection to save the mankind (people who believe in Jesus Christ, the Savior) from the death because of sin,
(Jesus is the Resurrection) John 11:25 Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;
(Gospel of God) Romans 1:4 and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
(Baptism for the removal of Sin) 1 Peter 3:21 and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also - not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
(Ressurection of the Dead) Luke 14:14 and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.

Ephesians 4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
