To be circumcised meant to receive the sign and seal of the highest and richest spiritual blessings the LORD could bestow on His people in Christ. What were these rich and profound spiritual blessings? How does biblical history unfold the meaning and spiritual significance of circumcision?

Today we will take a look at three spiritual realities that circumcision, like baptism now, signified and sealed to Old Testament believers.

I.   Circumcision signified and sealed justification through faith alone.

II.  Circumcision signified and sealed union with Christ.

III. Circumcision signified and sealed regeneration of the Holy Spirit.
