2 Corinthians 1:21,22 – “Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.”
So, do you like Stevie Wonder? I know, a little bizarre to be asking that question after this verse. But not really. Just look at it!
Signed – “He anointed us”. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, He sends His Spirit upon us to lead us and guide us.
Sealed – “set his seal of ownership on us”. We are marked as His. What does that mark look like? The blood of Jesus Christ.
Delivered – “guaranteeing what is to come”. Heaven!! Count me in! No more sorrow and pain – an eternity in a beautiful, sin-free city with my Jesus!
I’m yours! – I can’t think of any better place to be than beside Jesus. I stray. I mess up. But He is always waiting for me to come to my senses and get back on the path. Have you ever watched the parent of a toddler take a walk? The toddler is distracted by everything. And the parent patiently waits for the child to come back and hold their hand. Sometimes they need a verbal or physical cue. That, dear one, is me – through and through. Yet, I’m still His.
So, Stevie Wonder may not have realized that his song could be found in the Bible, but hey, why not! Enjoy your day, princess. And, your welcome – for getting that song stuck in your head all day long!😊
