Trust and believe = sealed (Part I)
Main Course: 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory (Ephesians 1:13-14).
There are only 2 steps that’s needed to receive the grace of God, trust and believe. When you think about it, these were the only 2 steps that was taken for you to receive salvation; and in all actually, it’s still the same for anything else you will be receiving from the Lord: healing, prosperity and wholeness. This is the simplicity of grace, no fluff, just trusting and believing in Him to receive His promises for your life. So the same steps required to receive salvation is the same steps you use to employ His promises. You trusted, you believed and His Spirit sealed and that’s a done deal (Eph. 1:13-14).
You see, God doesn’t want us to just stop at salvation when He gave us the kingdom (Luke 12:32). He restored everything back to us including the kingdom and in order for us to partake of it (Eph. 2:6), we must receive His promises, a portion of our inheritance that’s in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Eph. 1:3, 2 Pet. 1:3). cont'd
