April 4 He Made Your Seat!

Ephesians 2:4-6

4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

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 there 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!

ACTION POINT:

Take a moment and ask God to give you a brand new life or thank Him for the one He has already given you.
