“And hath raised usup together, and made ussit together in heavenly placesin Christ Jesus.” – Ephesians 2:6
Why is the empty tomb so glorious? Because it signifies more than just the fact that God raised Jesus from the dead. He raised you, too, to walk “in newness of life” (see Romans 6:4). I have come out of that grave. I have ascended. You have, too, if you are saved.
Where is Christ today? Seated in the heavenlies. Where are you seated? In the same place. You don’t have to die to go to heaven. In Christ, you are seated in the heavenlies right now.
We encourage our brothers and sisters by telling them to keep looking up when we should be saying, “Keep looking down!” You’re already seated in the heavenlies, so you can look down on your problems. You, dear friend, have a brand new life!
Take a moment and ask God to give you a brand new life or thank Him for the one He has already given you.
