Scripture Reading: Ephesians 1:13
One of the most comforting verses of Scripture, in Paul's letters, concerning eternal security is Ephesians 1:13. We find that the Holy Spirit of promise is Himself the seal.
So far as our salvation is concerned, it is a finished transaction. It also means He actually owns us. We have become His purchased possession. "We are bought with a price."
We also rejoice to see that in Ephesians 1:13, it should read that we were sealed upon believing. The moment we were saved, we were sealed until the day of redemption. We were translated out of the darkness into the kingdom of the Son of God's love (Colossians 1:13). No one can take us out of the Body of Christ. We have the guarantee and pledge of the Spirit that He will perform His sealing until the day of redemption, and that is when we go in the Rapture of the Church, to meet the Lord in the air. No wonder we have confidence in our salvation, as Paul says in Romans 8. Saved and sealed! All in the same moment -the moment we believed!
There is "nothing that can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." It also was the Holy Spirit Who baptized us into the one Body of Christ. Thanks be unto God 'for His sure promise of eternal security (Ephesians 4:30). He abideth faithful. Whether we wake, er whether we sleep, we are the Lord's!
