Even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. - Ephesians 2:5-6
Knowing what God has made us in Christ Jesus empowers us to fully claim and occupy our rightful positions. Christ partook of our human nature so that we can also partake of His divine nature and positions.
He lives His life 'together' with us. Through His life, death and resurrection, God has:
• Made us alive. God is a life-giver. He makes our spirits alert and responsive to His Holy Spirit. Because we are alive to Him, we can hear the voice of God and experience His presence. We are no longer dead in sins but alive to righteousness.
• Raised us up. God is a lifter. He found us knocked down and out on the sidewalk of life and reached out to us.
His grace raises us from the deepest depths of sin, shame and defeat. Because He has raised us, we can walk tall and live confidently.
• Made us sit. We are seated where Christ is seated, at the right hand of the Father. To sit where Christ is seated is to benefit from the favour and authority that the Father has made available to Christ. We have the ear of the Father when we pray.
We are seated in a seat that is far above principalities and powers of evil.
Prayer: Thank You Father, for the new position of favour You have set me in through Christ.
Scriptural Reading: Ephesians 2:1-10
