Tired? Take a seat... in heaven!

"He made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus." Eph. 2:6

Can you be in two places at once? Ask Paul. He writes that this is the heritage of every child of God and does so almost as an after thought! This makes more sense if you understand that we as individuals not only consist of a body and mind, but a spirit as well. (The 'trinity' isn't just a concept made up out of thin air, its present in nature, even in our own make up!). But I'm not here to expound on thousand year old theology but rather an amazing mystery, that as you are sitting somewhere reading this, your spirit is at rest in Christ, in heaven. This holds true no matter where you might find yourself in life; you could be rotting in a jail cell six floors underground or in the middle of the Pacific on a wooden raft, and all the while you're so close to Jesus you can hug Him! Close your eyes and picture yourself; you are dressed in white robes, crowned with glory and grace, made perfect, whole and righteous forever, and sitting down next to Jesus the King of kings. Kings rule when they sit! In heaven, there is no need, no hunger, no unfulfilled desire of any kind. Look around from this position, do you see the vast universe of God's supply for you? Do you see the prayers of myraids of fellow saints rising to His throne of grace being answered before your eyes? Understand and see, not with your physical eyes and the five senses of your body, but rather with the eyes of faith, seeing the unseen. You are seated with Christ, you are forever clean, and all that Jesus has is yours. Don't take my word for it. Jesus, your brother, called you a king (Rev. 1:6). Live like one!
