You Are SEALED!

Ken Harrell

Senior Pastor

With the time we have left to live this Christian life, we want to walk in confidence, not doubt. And we can walk confidently, assured of our salvation because the Word of God tells us clearly that once we’ve received the Lord as our Savior, it’s a done deal.

Three words sum it all up when it comes to this thing of eternal security. It was purchased for you by Christ. It was promised to you by God. And this week, we’re going to see…you’ve been sealed by the Holy Spirit.

We’re diving into God’s Word to see what it has to say about the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of every single believer. Simply put, “You Are SEALED!”… and this truth makes all the difference.

Fill-in Notes

Key Scripture

Ephesians 1:13–14

Discussion Questions

Don’t be afraid to add to this list, skip questions that don’t work for your group, or branch off with additional questions as discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.

  1. Pastor said that a Christian is someone whose past is forgiven and whose future is secure. How do these truths convict you to witness to others who don’t know Christ?
  2. Share with your group how and when you accepted Christ. How does it make you feel knowing that nothing else needs to be done for your salvation to be secure and that you’re on your way to heaven with Him?
  3. The following quote was in your notes: “If an individual thinks they can lose their salvation, somewhere in the back of their mind they have a works mentality… a works salvation.” How do the Biblical principles that we’ve learned about these past few weeks squash the idea of a works-based salvation? Does a verse like James 2:26 (faith without works is dead) challenge a grace-based salvation through Christ alone? Why or why not?
  4. Review the six reasons why my salvation is secure. Which one stood out to you the most and why?
  5. Pastor mentioned that the more we pay for something, the better we take care of it. Read Romans 8:32. How much greater significance does this passage have to you now? Does this motivate you to change the way you’re living today?
  6. In Greek, Tetelestai means “it is finished.” Our salvation has been purchased in full by what was accomplished on the cross, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. How does knowing this change the way you view your sins and your “old self” prior to becoming saved?
  7. Has there ever been a moment in your Christian life where you doubted your eternal security? Have you ever been less than 100% certain of where you’ll spend eternity? Discuss with the group why and where you are today.

Accountability
