This bottle is plugged with a tapered cork because a standard straight new cork is impossible to put into a wine bottle without a corker which compresses and forces it in, and you probably know how necessary a cork screw is to open a new bottle.

Ponder the truth that you are sealed BY GOD and no one can break that seal.

Then add a piece of cork to your journal.

Take some time to make a list in your journal of what the Spirit’s role is in your life.  If you’re having trouble getting started, read a few of these verses:

  • Jn. 16:8,13
  • 1 Cor. 2:10-12
  • 2 Cor. 3:17-18
  • Gal. 4:6
  • Eph. 3:5, 16
  • 1 Thes. 1:6
  • Jn. 14:26
  • Acts 9:31
  • … there are so many more!

Know whose you are and rest in that security!

Check it out!  It’s worth the read.)
