The Holy Spirit is your Engagement Ring of Promise!

Are you Ready to Get Married?

Acts 2:39 For the promise [of the Holy Spirit] is to and for you and your children, and to and for all that are far away, [even] to and for as many as the Lord our God invites and bids to come to Himself.

2 Corinthians 1:21-22 But it is God Who confirms and makes us steadfast and establishes us [in joint fellowship] with you in Christ, and has consecrated and anointed us [[a]enduing us with the gifts of the Holy Spirit];22[He has also appropriated and acknowledged us as His by] putting His seal upon us and giving us His [Holy] Spirit in our hearts as the security deposit and guarantee [of the fulfillment of His promise].

Reflection: When a woman gets engaged, what is the first thing that she wants to show you? Her ring! She wears a smile on her face as she proudly puts forth her hand & shows you her beautiful engagement ring! Her ring is not only a symbol but a promise to be married to her future husband! The ring also makes a statement that she has been set apart for one man.

As a follower of Jesus Christ we too have an engagement ring which holds a promise. Our engagement ring is the precious Holy Spirit & we should be excited about the fact that we are His bride to be. My question to you today is, are you hiding your engagement ring, the promise of the Holy Spirit? Are you embarrassed to show others your ring? Are you willing to be set apart, so that Jesus can use you as his ambassador, his representative to make His appeal through you to the a lost & dying world? We should be excited about the promise that we have, so much so that we will tell others, shouting it from the highest mountain, who He is & why he is coming? It’s time for the Body of Christ to not be ashamed of who we are in Christ & allow the Lord to make his appeal through us to others! It’s time for the bride to fulfill her promise to her King Jesus!
