Sealing of His Spirit
“In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.” Ephesians 1:13-14 (ESV)
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.
