Scripture: Ephesians 1:13,14
One of the first and strongest seals that I look for in the lives of people is in Ephesians 1:13,14. It says, “In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.” If we are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, we may not be spiritually mature, but have at least yielded to the Holy Spirit and have said ‘yes’ to the fullness of the Spirit. Even though we might speak foreign languages we have never learned, it says there is enough humility in us to take God’s seal and let Him rule and tame our tongues. Do we have the seal of the Holy Spirit? And are there other seals? Yes! There are nine in all, two of which are absolutely essential. We must walk with the seal of the Holy Spirit!
