Make Yourself at Home

Our text will come from Ephesians 2:6.  And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

Our text today is a great text and very much ignored by many.  The Bible says that we are in heavenly places, in Christ.  That is, being in heavenly places is conditional on being in Christ. 

Don’t let someone talk you out of your faith, if you have placed your faith in the Lords death, burial, and resurrection.  This is the   means of having eternal life. You see those that are trying to work their way to Heaven will not like the verse because it takes the spot light off them and puts it on the Lord Jesus Christ.  God said in His word in another passage in the book of Isaiah that the glory that was His would not be taken away from Him.

So, sorry about their luck.

God will get the glory in their salvation, not them.

It is Jesus that does the saving.  It  is Jesus that does the keeping and it is Jesus that does the protecting.  It is Jesus whom we will worship when we get to Heaven.  We won’t be patting ourselves on the back because we made it there.

We get to Heaven by His grace and not by works of our own.

So…what a great thought!  We are already in Heaven spiritually if we are in Christ.  We are only waiting for our bodies to make the trip.  In the mean time if  you are in Christ…
