God's Promise

[You were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,]
who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption
of those who are God's possession -- to the praise of his glory.
-- Ephesians 1:14
THOUGHT:
God is true to his word. He keeps his promises. But, that was
not enough for him. He gave us a down payment, a deposit, so we
could be sure of our inheritance and look forward to the full
realization of our salvation. He gave us the Holy Spirit. When God
buys us out of slavery to our mortal bodies and redeems us into our
eternal home with bodies that will not grow old or decay, we won't
need the deposit; we will have the full inheritance. But until
then, until we go to him, isn't it amazing that he makes his home
within us!
