Scripture Reading: Ephesians 1:14

God the Holy Spirit has much to do with the Body of  Christ and the members in particular. It is God the Holy  Spirit who quickens and regenerates us. "Not by works of  righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy  he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of  the Holy Ghost" (Titus 3:5).

It is God the Holy Spirit that seals us (Ephesians 1:13).

This sealing is permanent. When the Spirit of God takes up  His abode in a believer, He never leaves him in life or in death,  until presented faultless in the presence of the glory of our  Lord Jesus Christ. The seal of the Holy Spirit is  accomplished at salvation.

God the Holy Spirit is also the earnest of our inheritance.

When I was a boy, my mother would let me lick the mixing  bowl and spoon. This was not the cake but merely a taste of  good things to come. We all know what earnest money  represents. It is a little down payment which assures we will  pay more. God has "blessed us with all spiritual blessings in  heavenly places in Christ" (Ephesians 1:3); "made us accepted  in the beloved" (Ephesians 1:6); given us "redemption through  His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of  His grace" (Ephesians 17); and given us His Spirit; but there  is so much more to come. That is just a little down payment,  a taste of good things to come. "That in the ages to come He  might shew the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness  toward us through Christ Jesus" (Ephesians 2:7). All of this is  to the praise of His glory. Think of it! Every saint of God,  every redeemed one, every sinner saved by grace, will add to  the glory and the satisfaction of God throughout eternity!

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
