SEATED WITH CHRIST

Because of a believer’s union with Christ, God counts what happened to Christ in His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension as having happened to the believer as well. Therefore, just as Jesus is now seated in glory, so is the believer.

READ: Ephesians 2:4-7

READ: Colossians 3:1-4

Jesus died. We died. Jesus rose. We rose. Jesus is seated in glory. Therefore, so are we! We are to set our minds on heavenly things—where Christ is—rather than earthly things. What are some earthly things that vie for your attention? Name them specifically. How can you set your mind more on things above? Remember Hebrews 12:1-3. Christ is risen! We have been raised with Him! Alleluia!

WRONG THINKING: The things of this earth are all that really matters. I must think about and pursue them.

RIGHT THINKING: Since Christ is seated above, and God counts me as seated there with Him, my mind should be on my heavenly home.
