The Guarantee of the Holy Spirit

12

Welcome to Day 4, let’s start by reading Ephesians 1:13-14…

Thoughts for Today

 

Yesterday we read about the inheritance we have gained through Jesus Christ and how God has planned all things for his purposes and glory.

Focussing on these verses, think about:

  1. Recall when you first heard the word of truth. Spend a few minutes remembering your own experience…if it helps, jot it down or outline it. How would you testify to others about how you became a Christian?
  2. What has God done for you? Start to list the ways becoming a Christian has made a difference to you.
  3. Verse 13 says we are “sealed with the promised Holy Spirit”. What does this mean?
  4. What comfort can you take from the word “sealed, “promised” and “guarantee”? What does that help us to understand?
  5. What difference can these verses make to our lives? How can they encourage and equip us?

Prayers for Today

 

Consider:

  • How can you praise God today for what he has done?
  • Ask God to help you truly know the assurance you have in Christ through these verses.
  • Pray for those who have not yet heard the word of truth and the gospel of salvation.

Grace and Love
