Guaranteed Inheritance
In Him you also trusted, after you heard the the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, 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. Ephesians 1:13,14
Read Ephesians Chapter 1:13-23
The Holy Spirit is like the engagement ring that the bride receives from her bridegroom as a promise, until the day he comes and takes her in marriage. He is the guarantee of our inheritance; He seals the deal, so to speak. The word inheritance means legacy, birthright, or bequest. It's an awesome thing to think about; we have been given a spiritual inheritance from God Himself. Here Comes The Bridegroom With this ring I thee wait Until You come from those pearly gates To take me as your bride I hear Your footsteps, You're getting close I will be ready to depart Here comes the bridegroom Tell everyone that He wants them too To join Him at the marriage supper A feast like no other The Holy Spirit is the seal That He is coming and will reveal His incredible love, an inheritance To all, to all who will respond to His call Come quickly my King and my Lord Until then I will wear the promise You gave sealed by Your Spirit For You I await. TLR

Prayer: Father, thank You for the guarantee of Your Holy Spirit.
