God’s Seal of Salvation Brings Blessing

A Truth to Live – God extends grace to me when I trust in His Son, Jesus, to be my Savior.  Rather than basing my present and my future on my daily performance, God instead chooses to give me the gift of His Spirit as a seal, guaranteeing the abundant blessings of His presence now and the eternal inheritance with God in heaven. 

Scripture – “And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession--to the praise of his glory.”  Ephesians 1:13-14

Prayer – Heavenly Father, thank You for extending Your love and grace to me!  Today I receive Your salvation and rest in the presence of Your Spirit guiding and directing my life.  Help me to look to You at each moment of my day and to live in a way that gives You glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
