When God Sealed You

"In Him (Christ) you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise" (Ephesians 1:13). Scripture is clear, upon believing the gospel of Christ, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise at the same time. Every believer is sealed.

You became a new creation in Christ through new birth. You are born of the Spirit (John 3:5-8). The Holy Spirit created within you a new heart, which was a change of your mind, will, and emotions. "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new" (2 Corinthians 5:17).

You received the Holy Spirit of promise through faith in Jesus Christ (Galatians 3:2, 5). The Holy Spirit is the covenant promise of God to you and every believer. God says, "I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them" (Ezekiel 36:27).

The Holy Spirit is your seal of salvation, as Guide, Counselor, Helper and Comforter. The Holy Spirit has sealed you as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:13). Every believer is sealed unto the day of redemption (Ephesians 4:30). That's the day Christ returns and you are glorified (1 John 3:2).
