How the Lord assures us that we will inherit heaven

09.29.2017 – New Testament: Eph 1.13–14

To read the Bible in a year, read Ephesians 1 on September 29, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

Ephesians 1.3–14 presents spiritual blessings that we have in Christ in the heavenly places, including this,

In Him you also trusted, after you heard 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). 

Think about what Paul just said. The Lord seals us with the Holy Spirit who serves as a guarantee that we shall inherit from our heavenly Father. If He will give us the Holy Spirit now, surely He will give us our inheritance later. Praise the Lord!

Questions:

  • Do you trust in Jesus to do as He has promised?
  • Do you believe what the Bible says about Him?
