Experiencing Christ

The Practical Experiences of the Spirit’s Pledging

Bible Verse

Eph 1:13 …you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of the promise, (14) Who is the pledge of our inheritance…
2 Cor 1:22 He who has also sealed us and given the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge.

The pledging of the Spirit is given for our enjoyment. Whenever I am disappointed or depressed, the pledging comes in to uplift me. I experience this pledging daily, even hourly. Pledging also means that something is given to us as a guarantee. Through the Spirit’s pledging, we are encouraged and stirred up. Whenever we feel that the situation is hopeless, the pledging fills us with hope.

On the day we were saved, God began to pledge Himself to us, and this pledging continues day by day. It is very difficult for a Christian in the spirit to not believe that God is with him. We easily and spontaneously believe this because we daily receive the pledging of the Spirit. God is pledging all the time. When I am weak, He pledges Himself to me and becomes my encouragement. When my expectations are low, He pledges Himself, and I have hope once again. When it seems that my faith has subsided away, He pledges Himself to me, and immediately my faith revives. When it seems that I have no more love, the Spirit pledges Himself, and more love flows in….

Thought Of the Day:
