Sealed by the Holy Spirit

Do you ever struggle with wondering if you are really saved?

Of course you do. We all do.

As we preached in August on Matthew 7, there is a very serious warning given to us in the Bible. We're warned that there are many in the church who are not real believers.

This is something we should not take lightly. There are times when we should truly examine ourselves to see if we're in the faith.

But what if we truly are trusting in Christ?

Ephesians 1:13-14 says:

13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.

Questions to consider:

Have you heard the Gospel?

Have you believed it?

If so, the Bible says that you have been sealed by the Holy Spirit.

Have you been sealed with the Holy Spirit?

Then He is the guarantee of our inheritance- think of a down payment.

It has been made and so God will deliver.

If the first part of this chain is true, then all the rest are too.

Are you trusting Christ?

Then your salvation is as good as done.

God has put a down payment on you and He is coming someday to collect.

Being sealed by the Holy Spirit is a tremendous truth that should give us confidence that what God promised is true.

No one puts a large down payment on a house without the intention of moving in and purchasing the whole thing.

In the same way, God has given us His Holy Spirit to guarantee that someday He will come and take us to be with Him forever in heaven.

Believe it- because it's true!

In Christ,

Pastor Kevin
