Ephesians 2:6 says, “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.”  There is positional and practical truth in the Scriptures.  This verse describes a positional truth that we are already seated in heavenly places in Christ.  In other words, we are just as good as in heaven right now even though practically we have not experienced this yet.

Another way to look at it is that as redeemed ones we are “in Christ.”  This truth is found in Ephesians 2:6 and is also found in Ephesians 1:3.  This verse says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”  Since we are in Christ, and Christ is in heaven, then we are positionally already seated in heavenly places.

Are we living like we are already in heaven?  Am I?  Certainly in heaven our focus will be on our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.  Is He our focus now?  Are we living our lives to “please Him” (2 Timothy 2:4)?  May we do so today.  (192.2)  (DJ)
