Sealed and Guaranteed in Christ

stand firm“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ.  And so through him the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God.  Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ.  He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.”  2 Corinthians 1:20-23

I find these verses very encouraging.  Paul is telling us that ALL of God’s promises are fulfilled in and through Christ!  Christ helps us to stand firm in faith as we are on solid ground through what He accomplished on the cross.  He blesses us and seals our citizenship in heaven because through our faith in His work we belong to Him.  Finally, Paul says that God gives us His Holy Spirit to indwell our hearts with power so that we can know for sure our faith and future are secure.  What an amazing God we serve!   Do these facts of faith encourage you?  If so, thank God for His many blessings and tell someone today.

Loving our Promise Keeping God,

Linda
