Just before Jesus ascended into heaven after his resurrection, he told his disciples that the Holy Spirit would be coming to them. When the Holy Spirit filled them days later, they changed. They became sure and confident in their salvation. Ephesians 1:14 says that the Holy Spirit is a seal and a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance. When ask for and receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit, we have a confidence in who we are in Christ because the Holy Spirit is a seal on that salvation and a deposit that guarantees our future.
What a deal! Just like the first believers, we too can be sure and confident of our faith after we have received the Holy Spirit. When it happened 2000 years ago, there was no doubt! They had a guarantee. If you have received the Holy Spirit like they did in the book of Acts, you’ll know it and you’ll have that sense of being sealed in your salvation. The Holy Spirit in our lives guarantees our future. That is good news!
