Sealing of His Spirit
“And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.” Ephesians 1:13-14 (NIV)
The Holy Spirit seals the freshness of our assurance of salvation in and keeps the contamination of doubt out. Do not fear the loss of your salvation. Keep believing in Calvary, keep walking in the Word, and keep living the sealed life of the Spirit. The sealing of the Spirit is a picture of how we live the sanctified life in the full security of His protection of salvation.
The indwelling Holy Spirit transforms our character, strengthens our faith, and seals our inheritance of eternal life in Heaven. It marks us as a child of God and a citizen of the returning King Jesus.
Let’s pray today for those who doubt their salvation and who need the convicted power of eternal assurance.
