You have been sealed – stamped – marked by God. You are His. You bear His likeness and His Name. And He sent His Spirit to live in your heart as an eternal down payment. Like divine earnest money that guarantees what He purchased, He will without any doubt fully redeem you. On that day when hope gives way to sight and faith bows to possession, this holy transaction will be visibly complete for you will see Him as He is. Praise Him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the Presence of His glory with great joy (Jude 1:24)! What blessed assurance!
