We consider another way we have communion with the Spirit: He is the pledge of our eternal inheritance.

We see two things: 

  • First, that this pledge is not so much something the Spirit does, but the Spirit Himself. 
  • Second, how the Spirit is the pledge of heaven.

If you have this down payment of the Spirit and desire more, then this is the Lord’s testimony to you that you are His child and an heir of heaven.
