Re:Verse reading–2 Corinthians 1:12-24, 2:1-11 (day seven)
Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God, who also sealed us and gave us the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge. -2 Cor. 1:21-22
God has given us a guarantee in the person of the Holy Spirit who seals our lives in such a way that we know whose we are. We belong to the perfect creator of the universe.
The Holy Spirit is far more than just an identity badge though:
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. -John 14:26-27
In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; -Romans 8:26
God completes his perfecting work in our hearts and lives by the power of the Holy Spirit. May we trust His work and be transformed.
