Signed, sealed, delivered

“Having believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit”

Ephesians 1:13 (NIV)

Ephesus was a major seaport in which goods came from the eastern part of the world. The merchants from Rome would go there to purchase those goods. They would crate what they bought and put a wax¬†‘seal’ on their crate. They then pressed their personalized signet ring into the wax as a sign of ownership. It is a claim that “this is mine!”.

God has purchased us after we believed and trusted in Jesus. Then He went one step further, He put on us His seal of ownership. We can rest secure and strive forward with His blessings. (see “Start the Victory” atop to make sure you understand trusting in Jesus)


Heavenly Father, thank You for the seal of Your ownership on my life when I accepted Your Son’s payment on the cross. I’m Yours to mold, protect, use and bless. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
