The next blessing of this communion with the Spirit we consider is His sealing us: “you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory” (Eph. 1:13-14). We examine two things: 

  • First, what this sealing of the Spirit is. 
  • Second, why God seals us.

Do you see the image of Jesus Christ being formed in you by the Holy Spirit? If not, then look to Christ to save you, and repent of the sins that quench His work.
