In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.
This scripture is overlooked when arguments arise about salvation. When we believe and give ourselves over to the holy spirit we are sealed until the day of redemption, a promise made to us from God that we shall inherit the promise of eternal life.
We then live day by day in a spiritual war where we understand that for a time allot-ed to Satin he can influence us and lead us in a path that is unpleasing to God. We also live day by day with the word of God that tells us to continue in him and do not give up. We continue the battle knowing that the victory was won at carvery.
Today let me concentrate on these verses:
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
No matter what satin tries to tell me or lead me to do, I will remain strong in his promise to me.
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.
A promise from the word of God. We hang on to it until the day we shall be like him.
1 John 5:13
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.
Eternal security is a promise. We believe it and stand on what the word says about eternal security.
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Not just a select group of people but for what the word says, for everyone who believes.
So may I rest in the fact of knowing a God who loves unconditionally and walk in peace today with thanksgiving for all he has done in my life and others.
