How Evident is the Seal of Christ on You? – Upon the acceptance of Christ, comes a walk with Christ which is aided by the Holy Spirit that comes upon man, The Holy Spirit is the seal of Christ Jesus on man. Ask yourself, how evident is the seal; the Holy Spirit on my life?
A seal is a protective element over a document, an item, man to establish a guaranteed ownership protecting it from being tampered with.
Once we are redeemed, the Holy Spirit as a seal bears witness(proof of our legitimacy) with our spirit that we are the children of Yahweh and our ways reflective of His ways and that is to mean we are have to be Holy. – Romans 6:18.
Your believe at John 3:16 a definite indicator of acceptance of the seal of Jesus Christ upon your life; 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,– Ephesians 1:13
Now, with this, how evident is the seal of Christ on you?
With the seal, the body is no longer yours but the temple of the Holy Spirit and all members of your body(your mouth, the hands, the legs, the soul, the mind, everything) belongs to Christ. Christ therefore dwells in the body with the Seal on, sin is no more entertained in such a body. To live in Christ is life otherwise you are already dead walking. – Romans 8:13, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.
The Seal staying on, is a proof of how ORIGINAL an AUTHENTIC you are! Have you tampered with the Seal? What are the members of your body up to? How do you live your life? Is it to edify the Seal or to bring Sorrow to it?
‘And do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption.’ Ephesians 4:30
Galatians 5:16-26 already stated the divide for you to clearly see what is a do and a don’t. Allow me to share the below in Ephesians 4:31-32 to broaden your do’s and don’t’s.
‘Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.’
Let the Seal of Christ be Evident in your life and how you live it. God bless you.
Dear LORD, cause me to yield more to the leadings of the Holy Spirit and to edify it.
