He set His seal of ownership on us
" He set His seal of ownership on us , and put His Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come!" 2 Corinthians 1:22
Those who have the same mind in them that was in Christ Jesus—bear the impression of God's seal. They are distinctly marked as belonging to Him. The impression of the seal is deeper on some of the Lord's people than on others; but all who have received the love of the truth, and are trusting in Christ alone for salvation—are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.
Any who are entirely destitute of the Spirit of the Lord Jesus, do not belong to Him: "If any man does not have the Spirit of Christ—he does not belong to Him." Many, alas! bear the impression of a seal the very opposite of God's seal. By their love of sin, and by their unholy tempers and their evil doings—they are plainly marked as belonging to the god of this world. Oh that their eyes may be opened, that they may be turned from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God!
Beloved reader—is sin hateful, and is Christ precious to you? Do you desire to be like Him? If so, then you bear the impression of the Divine seal. You may not clearly see it yourself—but those who know you see it. He who has given you the deposit of the Spirit in your heart—will give the full possession. He who has produced the dawn—will lead on to perfect day. "He who has begun a good work in you—will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ."
Back to Every Day!
