All the glory, praises and honor be to the Heavenly Father in Jesus Christ’s precious name !

Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, the subject verse brings before us the guarantee of the Almighty God. The guarantee is that we are not our own, but the Lord’s. Indeed this verse talks about our ownership by the Living God. The Almighty God has set his Spirit in all of us as a seal of ownership. Truly brethren, the presence of Lord the Holy Spirit indeed marks God’s ownership.

Accept Jesus as Savior

Now, it is more important to check ourselves whether we have God’s seal of guarantee in us or not. The work of the Holy Spirit starts with the message of truth, which is the gospel. And by the gospel of our salvation we are equipped to yield to the Holy Spirit of the Lord. The absence of Holy Spirit itself is an indication that there is no place for the Lord and/or the person is yet to accept Jesus Christ. Those who turn to Jesus and accept Him as their Savior and get baptized shall surely receive this gift of Spirit. As the following verse says, when we hear the gospel of our salvation and believe in the Christ, we have the seal, the Holy Spirit of God.

‘And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, ‘

Ephesians 1:13

Therefore brethren, let us examine ourselves. Is Jesus alone is our Lord or the one who is ruling this world? If indeed you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord, then please do get baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit as said according to Matthew 28:19. Amen.
