We ARE seated with Christ Today, and always!

We ARE seated with Christ

ALWAYS!

Our union with Christ is today, yesterday, tomorrow for all time. I like how R. C. Sproul describes this using the following chapter:

Made Alive in Christ
As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time,gratifying the cravings of our flesh[a] and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace,expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Ephesians 2:1-9

we are seated with Christ

And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,

Ephesians 2:6

When we were released, and made new as we believed and accepted Christ we are now seated close to Him! I know, we look around us and think, really? What about all the evil around us?

Our life is lived by faith. We do not live by what we see in front of us.

2 Corinthians 5:7 New Life Version (NLV)
we are seated with christ
Big circle with words in it saying Christ the righteous and justified one the perfect man and son of God the pure and sanctified one the victorious and glorified one with a smaller circle almost overlapping the bigger circle with words Believer in Christ justified….adopted…..sanctified…..glorified

we are seated with Christ

I find a comfort to know that we are close to Jesus, near to Him, and He is near to us. It helps me to not think of the circumstances around me as something I need to figure out under my own power. He is right here near us now, and we are close to Him. Our Spirits are connected to Him. He IS walking with us through all our challenges in life. He feels our pain, our sorrow and our joys right along side of us.
