Ephesians 1:13-14 (NET) And when you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation) – when you believed in Christ – you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit

Over the years, I have observed that most believers who do not remain in Christ (but go back to the world) usually have a deficiency in the way they were born again. Many times, this deficiency is revealed in the fact that they were not properly baptized. Some were baptized in water and not baptized in the Holy Spirit, while others received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, but the fact that they were not baptized in water indicates a serious deficiency in the discipleship process that brought them into the faith. Remember, a baby that was not properly delivered can have many health complications that may even lead to loss of life. One of the major processes of being properly born again is an introduction to the ministry and person of the Holy Spirit.

From today’s Bible verse, we can learn that believers are marked with the seal of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the one who preserves us and keeps us in this dark and dangerous world. Without the Holy Spirit, we would not be able to survive and thrive.

I have also come to discover that many of the believers who did not remain in the Lord, despite the fact that they received the Holy Spirit, are those who were not taught to cultivate fellowship with the Holy Spirit. They did not come to know the person of the Holy Spirit. In many cases, the only thing they can reckon with the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues. The Holy Spirit is much more than the force that makes people speak in tongues. He is the personification of Jesus in our hearts and minds.

The Holy Spirit is the administrator of God’s grace in our lives. He is the one who strengthens [and comforts] us. Without the Holy Spirit, no believer can make it to the finish line.

Go into today remembering that receiving the Holy Spirit and cultivating fellowship with Him is the only way to stay alive and thrive spiritually.
