“LIVING” In The Access

1. (of a computer, file, etc.) accessible only to users entering the correct password.

He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through Him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. Therefore you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens of the saints and members of God’s household,…Eph. 2:17-19 

Eph. 4:30

…do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,
with whom you were sealed 
for the day of redemption. 

"Living” in The Holy Spirit is so
much more than opportunity!

“Holy” isn’t defined in human
terms with great success!

Experiencing God is available. Christ makes a way that has an all God look and reality. It is said that if you can explain it, it is not God.

Eph. 4:17 states that we can no longer live in the futility of the way we think.

Looking into Eph. 4 there is a wonderful depiction of “Living” that is associated with Christ. These are the qualities and ways that accompany “Living”:

  • Humble
  • Gentle
  • Peace
  • Mature
  • Sensitivity
  • Pure Speech
  • Freedom From Greed
  • Freedom From Anger
  • Words That Build and Encourage
  • A Life Of Compassion

(Francis Chan) “Because the Spirit does give us undeniable boldness and courage to enter places and do things we would not normally do, truth is, many don’t want to be led by the Spirit. For some of us, our comfort zones are more important to us than the will of God. Those people have now allowed fear and pride to become their god. For others who choose to let obey any instruction from the Spirit, get to experience unexplainable freedom and victory. These people have chosen to allow the Spirit to change them into the person God wants them to be.” (Rom. 8:10-11, 2 Cor. 3:17)

I want to emphasize a part of this quote to emphasize “Living”, “The Spirit (Seals) us to bring about undeniable boldness to enter places and do things we would not normally do”. 

One of the most direct meanings of “The Holy Spirit Seals us” is “Covering”. He “Covers”, this is more than a mark or label. Eph. 1:13 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…

Eph. 1:13, 4:30 (Sealed) Gr. Sphragizo = a signet, a private mark or seal for security and preservation, a mark of authenticity. 

Prayer, Oh God I want the Mark and Covering of The Holy Spirit for a safeguard against the trials I face in a world of uncertainty.
