Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 1:22

1:22 Who also hath sealed us - Stamping his image on our hearts, thus marking and sealing us as his own property. And given us the earnest of his Spirit - There is a difference between an earnest and a pledge. A pledge is to be restored when the debt is paid; but an earnest is not taken away, but completed. Such an earnest is the Spirit. The first fruits of it we have #Rom 8:23|; and we wait for all the fulness.

People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 1:22

2Co 1:22 Sealed us. The seal was anciently the mark of ownership. In Eph 1:13 4:30, it is said that the saints are sealed by the Holy Spirit. They are thus marked as Christ's. So here the sealing is by the "earnest of the Spirit".

    Verse 11 highlights the strength of the power of prayer. Here, Paul states that one way to help others is to pray for them. Just as prayer helped Peter escape unjust imprisonment, when we offer heartfelt prayer in the behalf of others, Jehovah God will certainly take notice.
