Spirit – The Seal of God

"It is God who gives us, with you, a sure place in Christ and has both anointed us and marked us with his seal, giving us as pledge the Spirit in our hearts." (2 Corinthians 1: 21)

The Holy Spirit is truly the seal of God. His presence and anointing in our lives are so convincing that only a person as blind as a rock could fail to notice this. Yet sadly, there are many who do not notice or care for the Person of the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Holy Trinity. They think that when it comes to religion, minimum is the best. But they do not hesitate to accumulate all the money and honor they could. How sad! How unfortunate!

God gave us the Holy Spirit to remind us at all times that He is in us, with us and for us. When new discoveries in science begin to make me question the foundation of my faith, it is the presence of the Holy Spirit that puts an end to the proud ideas that dare to question the knowledge of God. It is like a man after using the GPS navigation system for many years suddenly begin to doubt if the system that has faithfully guided him in his travels is nothing more than a useless toy.

It is the Holy Spirit that has given us a sure place in Christ. His active presence in us is a concrete proof that all God's promises are Yes and Amen. Trust in the Holy Spirit.
