We Belong To God, Not Man

21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;  22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.  (II Corinthians 1:21-22) 

It is certainly a comforting thought to know that God is our owner and not man.  It is He who gives us what we need to be able to stand in these evil times.  Yes, it is difficult.  But God gives us the ability.  He has anointed us and stablished us for the work.  In other words He has enabled us.  He has identified us as belonging to Him by simply allowing the Holy Spirit to dwell in us.  We belong to God.  The Holy Spirit seals us until the day of redemption.  We have a mark upon us.  It is a mark that shows we have been bought with a price.  It is a mark that shows we belong to another and not to ourselves.   To be sealed is to be free of tamper.  To be sealed shows the mark of ownership.  To be sealed shows that it is a true document.  It is wonderful to know that we have been sealed by God.  You are a child of a king, so be who you are!!
