SEATED WITH HIM
Ephesians 2:6-7 ” 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.”
The Scene: A chair symbolic of God’s heavenly throne.
Through God’s grace and mercy He has made it possible, by His promises, to sit with Him in His heavenly realm–He says so in His Word!
Revelation 3:21-22 “To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on His throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Matthew Henry Commentary tells us, “Christ himself had met with his temptations and conflicts. He overcame them all, and was more than a conquer. Those who are conformed to Christ in his trials and victories shall be conformed to him in his glory.” (published by Zondervan-1960 Edition)
