Our Blessedness In Christ

2 Corinthians 1:21-22–Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.


God has established us–He has made us firm with other believers in Christ.  We should therefore not be easily moved or shaken, but steady determined and positive.  We have to stand on the promises of God and receive from Him that strength, knowledge, and wisdom we need to face whatever comes our way.

God has sealed us–He has placed His mark of ownership and security on us.  “We are not our own but are bought with a price and our body and spirit are God’s” (1 Corinthians 6:20).

God has given us the earnest of the Spirit–Earnest means down payment.  God has given us the Holy Spirit in our hearts as the Divine pledge of all our future blessings and blessedness.  The Holy Spirit is our security.  As we walk in the Spirit we shall be firm, steady, determined and positive.  As we walk in the Spirit we shall be secure and safe.
