“Made, Raised, Seated”

“Made, Raised, Seated”

Blessings folk!

Yesterday we saw our previous status.
The condition we were in.

Read again.
Note what the Lord has done for us…

Eph 2:1-7

And you were dead in your trespasses and sins,

in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world,
according to the prince of the power of the air,
of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.

Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh,
 indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind,
and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,

even when we were dead in our transgressions,
made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),

and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Even though we lived in the lusts of our flesh…
Even though we indulged the desires of the flesh…
Even though we indulged the desires of the mind…
Even though we were by nature children of wrath…
Even though we were dead in our transgressions…

Even then…

Because of His great love for us…
Made us alive together with Christ.
Raised us up with Him.
Seated us with Him.

Think on that.
Made alive.
Raised up.
Seated with.

That is the status/position of the true believer.

Therefore, how shall we live?
