And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit
Ephesians 1:13 (NIV)
When you believed in Christ a number of things took place. In this text it tells us that when you believed you were included in Christ and marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit. This bible also calls this being born again. Your spirit was dead in sin but when you belived the Holy Spirit came and brought new life into your spirit. Marking and sealing you with his very presence. In fact the bible says this is a deposit or garuntee of what is to come. You have now been hidden in Christ. Marked as His child. His stamp of approval on your life. Sealed with His love and affection. Called as His child and His friend. Secure in Christ. If we truly understand who we are in Christ we will walk in greater freeedom.
Prayer Today: That we would be aware of the Holy Spirit in our lives. That would be secure in the knowledge that we are children of God.
