Transformation Today A Daily Devotional With Victor Adeyemi
“Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.” 2 Cor 1:22 (KJV).
As a new creation in Christ Jesus, you are preserved, safe and secure in Him because of the seal of His Holy Spirit in you. Not only can we look at a seal as proof of ownership, but it is also a means of preservation, protection, and security.
The seal of the Holy Spirit is a cover of protection over you; He guarantees the protection of your life and your eternal security. By the Holy Spirit you are sealed unto the day of salvation (Ephesians 4:30 Therefore, for as long as you believe in Christ Jesus, you are forever saved.
“…and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts”- An earnest is part of the purchase-money given in advance as security for the rest. We have the Holy Spirit as a down payment or a deposit of our inheritance, guaranteeing that our full redemption will come in Christ.
The indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit is evidence that our salvation is guaranteed.
Confession: I am a new creation in Christ Jesus. I have the Holy Spirit as a seal over me guaranteeing my full redemption in the day of the Lord.
