With a similar purpose, God sent His Holy Spirit to seal the souls of believers for eternity. The Holy Spirit acts as a gatekeeper for our souls. Having the Holy Spirit identifies us as belonging to Christ and bearing His seal of acceptance. The Holy Spirit guards our hearts and minds from harm by bringing thoughts to our conscience that remind us of Bible teachings when temptations assail us. Endowed with free will, we can override these spiritual warnings, but the Holy Spirit will not allow anything to rob us of our salvation. Just as there are substances such as alcohol that traverse the BBB and interfere with the function of the brain, sin interferes with one's spiritual life and walk with The Lord. Just as the BBB allows essential nutrients to enter our brains, we all need to increase our awareness of the Holy Spirit's working in our souls through prayer and Bible study to allow the blessings of God to enter into our souls.
For You shaped me, inside and out.
You knitted me together in my mother’s womb long before I took my first breath.
I will offer You my grateful heart, for I am Your unique creation, filled with wonder and awe.
You have approached even the smallest details with excellence;
Your works are wonderful;
I carry this knowledge deep within my soul.
It’s time to stop bringing grief to God’s Holy Spirit; you have been sealed with the Spirit, marked as His own for the day of rescue. (The Voice)
