Nay, more, upon His throne shalt thou sit.
In my recent study through Ephesians, I have been amazed at the relationship between the Father, Christ and His church. In Chapter 1, Paul explains in a prayer that Christ has been “seated [at God’s] right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And He put all things under His feet…” Christ is the supremely exalted One. Take two minutes to feel the weight of these words. If you need a starting place, try reading it with extra emphasis on each word “all.”
Right after this glorious statement, Paul says that God
“gave Him as head
over all things
to the church.”
“is His body,
the fullness of him
who fills all in all.”
Christ has been exalted above everything and all things are under his feet… under his feet. Christ is the head of the body, right? So what does that mean about us, who being His body share His feet?
Church, God Almighty has subjected all things under Christ, and you are in Christ. You have everything to rejoice over, for in Him the whole universe is subjected underfoot. Don’t forget today that you are a co-heir with Christ. And don’t just think about it; feel it.
Grace be with you, and my love.
