By grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus… (Ephesians 2:5-6, author’s emphasis).
I fly a lot. Everything looks different from way up in the sky. The highest mountain in the contiguous 48 states is still four miles below when you’re 35,000 feet in the air. Although that mountain is very tall, it looks pretty miniscule from that up-in-the-air vantage point. Things appear differently when you’re way up above them.
Maybe that’s part of the point of us being “seated with him in the heavenly places.” Maybe life here on earth is supposed to be seen from that perspective. It changes how we view situations and events here and now.
Remember today: You are seated with Christ in heavenly places.
