Once we have been filled with the life of Christ, we are sealed. Paul wrote in Ephesians 1:13, "In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation - having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise." Stevie Wonder was onto something in the 70's with his hit song, 'here I am, signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours!' :-)
Cleansing, filling, and sealing - a wonderful picture of salvation. It helps us to see that salvation is much more than forgiveness of sins. Jesus Christ gave His life for us, so that He could give His life to us, so that He could live His life through us. Amen! :-)
Christ has come to live in our hearts. Once we were just children. Now we're children of God. When we see that this is the true goal of salvation, the cross of Jesus Christ, where we have been cleansed once for all, takes on a whole new meaning.
John wrote in John 7:37-38, "Jesus stood and cried, saying, "If anyone is thirsty, let Him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, 'From the innermost being will flow rivers of living water.' "
We believe and we receive. Jesus does the rest. You've been cleansed, filled, and sealed. Enjoy the abundant life that God has promised. Amen! Thank you, Jesus! :-)
