This is our third lesson, Seated with Christ, in a series on significance. I hope it is a blessing to you. If you have missed any of our previous lessons, please see below for what we have talked about so far…
Seated with Christ
What does that mean, and how does that equate to significance?
I am glad you asked!
Let me share what God showed me!
You are Significant:
You are Seated with Christ!
For He raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. – Ephesians 2:6
I love this passage of Scripture!
Let’s break it down, so that we can fully appreciate what this tells us…
For He raised us from the dead along with Christ…
We are no longer dead and bound by sin. When Jesus rose from the dead after paying OUR debt, we rose WITH Him! We are ALIVE in Him and FREE from the bondage of sin!
and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus
We are heirs of the King of Kings and Lord or Lords!!!!
We are seated WITH Christ! We are a part of a royal family… and not just any royal family–THE royal family! I am talking about the Creator of the Universe! The Great I Am… the ONE True God’s family!
We are HEIRS to HIS Kingdom!
We are very significant to His purpose and He loves us each as if we were an only child!
Please know that I understand what it is like to go through struggles and feel like you are drowning. I know life is hard. I have endured many hardships in this life, and there are days I wonder if I really can take any more. However, I also know that God will never leave us or never forsake us!
So, let make a deal! The next time self pity, sadness, unthankfulness, worry, fear, or any of the many trials of life bog us down, let’s remember this:
We are Seated with Christ!
Pin it for later!
