Scripture: 2 Timothy 2:19
2 Timothy 2:19 says, “Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: ‘The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.’” There is a seal. The foundational seals of the Lord are first the Holy Spirit and second, a commitment to God’s Word strong enough that a person flees from iniquity. The pursuit of righteousness and love of purity is a core, foundational seal. If we intend to enter into covenant with someone, if we are willing to link arms with them, we had better make sure they have this seal. God says that bad company corrupts good morals. The people we embrace as friends become influential in our lives. We must wisely and maturely choose right to avoid eternal consequences.
