October 22 – Secured Forever

“And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.” – 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 (NASB)

The Trinity — There are three persons in the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one God, the same in substance, equal in power and glory. All participate in securing the believer.  We find the promise in today’s passage that first of all, it’s God the Father who established us together in Christ the Son. It’s God’s gift as the Holy Spirit who has anointed us and who has marked us with His seal. The one who has established us, anointed us, sealed us, given us the guarantee of the Spirit is none other than God.  So, the reason we are secure is because we’ve been secured in God the Son. Consider 2 Timothy 2:19.  “the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal” ⸺now here’s the seal that seals our ultimate redemption ⸺ “The Lord knows those who are His”, and “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.” This seal is a symbol of ownership.  The divine seal is proven by two characteristics. The first is that The Lord knows those who he has called and belong to Him. The second is our new way of life
