His Seal of Ownership

Now it is God who makes both us and you stand
firm in Christ. He appointed us, set his seal of
ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts
as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
1 Corinthians 1:22

Now what is a Christian? He is a man clear of death
and judgement, brought to God, his sins forgiven:
one who has a new nature, who has received the
Holy Ghost, and who has a new place before God
in Christ, of whose body he is a member; one who
knows he is a child of God, an heir of God, and a
joint-heir with Christ; who has nothing but glory
now before him, and is looking for the coming of
our Lord Jesus Christ, to take him home to the rest
and glory of the Father's house. It is therefore a
wonderful thing to be a Christian: an unspeakably
blessed thing!  WTP Wolston  1840-1917

Reader, what a description of all God is to us and
all God is giving us! A saved Life from the moment
we exchange our poor sinful life for His! An eternal
life that has no beginning and no end for we are now
IN the eternal Son. He is our dwelling place.
