I was reading this evening in Ephesians and noticed something that just 'jumped' right out. (You know what mean- when you feel like you have just read something for the very first time- as if every word in the book isn't 2000 years old!)
"...you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory." (Chapter 1:13ish-14)
I am so thankful that the Holy Ghost is IN me- my GUARANTEE of salvation. It is my personal guarantee that one day I WILL see Jesus. Nothing can take the Holy Ghost from me. No one can pull it out. I have a 100% guarantee that as long as I keep the Holy Ghost, I WILL be part of that purchased possession that will one day be redeemed for God's glory! WOW- Thank God for the third day when He rose from the dead to infill us with His guarantee!
I hope all of you have a wonderful Easter. Ours will be cool (with snow- how ridiculous is that?)and blessed!
