"Marked in Christ" (Eph 1:11-14)
The seal of the Holy Spirit reminds us that we are chosen, called, and commissioned by Christ. This seal gives us a great sense of security: I truly belong to Him, a sense of assurance: I am the real child of God, and a sense of confidence: I am precious to Him. So then, we choose to trust Him, we happily surrender ourselves to Him as we belong to Him. That's the life of worship.
For LifeNet groups and personal reflection:
1) Do you have an experience where you felt God had forsaken you? What was the situation? Why did you think God had forsaken you? Did God not care for you?
2) The Holy Spirit was given not only to Apostle Paul but also to Christians in Ephesus. What does God speak to you through this fact? How will you respond to him?
3) In order to make the presence of the Holy Spirit more vivid or make the work of the Spirit more active in your life, what is your part to do? What will you do as the first step, within this week?
