Spiritual Gifts Part 132: The sealing ministry is completely a work of God’s grace.
F. The sealing ministry of the Holy Spirit, ; ; .
Sealing with the Spirit means that God the Holy Spirit, by virtue of the fact that He indwells us permanently, is the seal
placed by God the Father upon every believer, ...
... marking us with His ownership, approval, protection, and signature guarantee of our eternal security.
If you are a believer in Christ, your soul has already been redeemed, .
The second aspect is the redemption of your body. Your body will be changed so as to become like the resurrection body of the Lord Jesus Christ, , , .
The sealed one is complete forever and will be conformed to the image of Christ in glory, .
The sealing with the Spirit is the mark of our God who is fully committed to carrying out the glorification of the believer, .
The sealing with the Spirit is completely a work of God’s grace.
Grace is free, limitless, unmerited blessing to helpless, undeserving sinners from the loving God who is completely satisfied by the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace.
