πŸ‘‘ Sealed With The Spirit

β€œIn Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvationβ€”having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise” (Ephesians 1:13).

Most careful commentaries of the Bible make it clear that the words β€œafter listening,” in the above verse, actually have an immediate result in view. Upon hearing (or heeding), and upon believing, we are sealed with the Spirit.

What is perhaps even more important to note, is the fact that upon believing β€œthe gospel of salvation,” we are sealed with the Holy Spirit, not just by the Holy Spirit. There is a difference between the two, which can be simply illustrated.

Imagine someone who is β€œputting up” honey or preserves and sealing each jar with wax. Now, the jars are being sealed by the individual, but they are sealing them with wax. Thus the Holy Spirit does not merely cause believers to be sealed and made secure. Rather He Himself is the Seal that keeps us eternally secure as God’s beloved children. We are sealed, not β€œby the Spirit,” but β€œwith the Spirit,” … the Spirit Himself the Seal!

β€œJude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ” (Jude 1).

Verse for 2/21/2018

For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. — Romans 13:9-10
