The Holy Spirit as A Testimony

"It is the Spirit himself bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God" (Romans ). We once had lost our identity as God's children because we had sinned against him. But by Christ's salvation, we are now God's children again. God now gives us the Holy Spirit as a witness to tell us that we are his children.

We were also spiritually dead in sin. But God restored our spiritual life, giving us eternal life. Now God lives in us through his Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives us the assurance of God's presence. "And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit which he has given us" (1 John ).

The Holy Spirit is also a "seal" that guarantees God's promise of a heavenly home for believers (see Ephesians -14 and 2 Corinthians 5:1-5). How do we know that Christ is alive? We know because his promise of the Holy Spirit has come true. How do we know that heaven is real? We know by the Holy Spirit God has poured out on us.
