1) The promises of the gospel belong to those who believe the gospel (Romans 8:9)
For believers in the resurrected Jesus:
2) Death is the start of life (Romans 8:10)
3) The Holy Spirit guarantees your resurrection (Romans 8:11)
You may have heard it said that the Holy Spirit is like the engagement ring that seals us when we are saved. But not only is the Holy Spirit like the engagement ring, He is also like the wedding ring that seals us, that unites us to Christ so that we have that guarantee of our salvation!
We have the guarantee that not only will we be admitted to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, but that God Himself is longing for that day. You are the bride of Christ. He’s not going to give us the engagement ring and not the marriage! Our assurance of physical resurrection is just as sure as Jesus’ resurrection.
