神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16).

双语灵修丨葛培理布道团:圣灵的印记(2019.06.07)

既然信他,就受了所应许的圣灵为印记。弗1:13

Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal,the promised Holy Spirit. Ephesians 1:13, NIV

当我们接受基督的时候,上帝就在我们心里印了印记。这个印记就是圣灵。因着圣灵,上帝就给我们平安、保障,并成为我们的主人。圣灵也是上帝的应许。他不仅印了印,也应许与我们同在。与圣灵的团契,正是因为我们期待着属天的产业。还有,圣灵是一个见证。因着圣经--上帝的话语,因着基督—上帝在十字架上的工作,我们就相信上帝,并成为他的儿女。

多么奇妙的事!我们能够知道因着圣灵,我们被印了印记、得了应许、作了见证。但愿圣灵的每一个果效都能丰丰富富给我们信心,让我们寻求活出基督。

God places a seal on us when we receive Christ. And that seal is a person-the Holy Spirit. By the Spirit’s presence God gives us security and establishes His ownership over us.

The Spirit is also God’s pledge. He not only seals the arrangement, but he represents God’s commitment to see us through. And fellowship with the spirit is a sample of what we can expect when we come into our inheritance in Heaven.

Finally, the spirit witnesses to us, by the Scriptures and within our hearts, that Christ died for us, and by faith in Him we have become God’s children.

What a wonderful think to know the Holy Spirit has been given us a seal-a pledge- and a witness! May each of these give us confidence as we seek to live for Him.
