Ephesians 1:13-14

 
In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
Ephesians 1:13-14

Identity. It's a word that comes up often in our lives. We have identity protection; we are asked to identify ourselves; we can be victims of identity theft, and the list goes on.

In these two verses, Paul reveals to each believer in Christ what their true identity is all about. We hear the gospel, we trust the Lord, and we believe. In that moment, we are "sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise." God identifies you and me as His; we belong to Him. We have the Holy Spirit living within us, and God’s guaranteed "proof of ownership" is permanent.

The next time you look in the mirror, ask yourself, "Who am I?" Remember His promises to you and let the Lord answer that question. He loves you, He saved you, and He will never let you go.
