You Are Sealed
“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”
You are sealed
You are sealed for the day of redemption by the power of the Holy Spirit in your life. When you invited Jesus Christ into your life by confessing Jesus as Lord and believing and trusting in HIM in your heart, you received the seal of the Holy Spirit in your life.
Realize though you can grieve the Holy Spirit. How do you grieve the Holy Spirit? Carrying unforgiveness in your heart grieves the Holy Spirit. Hurt people hurt people. The symptoms of being hurt (having unforgiveness) are shown by your actions of bitterness, rage, anger and slander. The antidote for getting rid of bitterness, rage, anger and slander is to receive and meditate on how much God loves you. This will renew and transform you thinking so that you can be kind, compassionate and forgiving to others.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:29-32
You grieve the Holy Spirit by carrying bitterness in your heart.
You grieve the Holy Spirit by carrying rage in your heart.
You grieve the Holy Spirit by carrying anger, brawling and slander in your heart.
The action that gets rid of the bitterness, rage, anger, brawling, and slander is being kind to the person who hurt you. Be compassionate to the person who has damaged and harmed you. Forgive this person just as Christ has forgiven you.
When you carry unforgiveness in your heart it is evidenced by anger, rage, bitterness and slander. It grieves the Holy Spirit when you carry unforgiveness in your heart.
God has forgiven you through sending Jesus Christ to die for your sin. Jesus has forgiven you of your sin. You are to forgive as Christ Jesus has forgiven you. You have been sealed with the Holy Spirit which will never leave you nor forsake you. You grieve the Spirit of God living in you when you hold onto your hurt. Jesus was hurt by the people who crucified HIM, yet HE died for them. HE forgave them. Christ died and gave HIS life to give you the ability to forgive the person or people who have hurt you as HE has forgiven you.
His payment on the cross is for all sin. HE died for the entire world. You have been sealed with the power of the Holy Spirit to go and forgive as Christ Jesus forgave you.
