“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 NLT
We read in Ephesians 2:6 that the Holy Spirit, in the moment we believe and choose to trust Jesus with our salvation and with our life, grabs us out of death and darkness, and transfers us into the light of God’s glorious presence. Our bodies remain on earth, but our spirits experience quantum physics! That is, our spirits are in two places at the same time, in heaven with Jesus and still here on earth.
Does that blow your mind?! Anyone who trusts in Jesus, is already in Heaven, with Jesus, right now. What an encouraging and awesome truth! May that truth FEEL true to you today.
Stop and think. If you believed in your heart that you were secure and loved in Heaven with Jesus right now, how would you live differently? Maybe your problems here on earth would seem smaller? Your fears and anxiety would shrink as God’s promises become more real? Would you want to tell others you love, so they would be with you and enjoy more peace?
God’s Word is true. We can trust in what it says. If you belong to Jesus, then you are secure in his love forever. The proof is in where you are and where he is -- together in Heaven right now. Why not talk to him about it?
Pray with me: Holy Spirit, thank you for transferring me out of death and darkness and into the glorious light of Heaven. Lord Jesus, I choose to sit at your feet and listen to what you want me to know. Give me eyes to see you and ears to hear you more clearly. I ask in your precious name, Jesus. Amen.
Dear friend, be blessed to experience the love of God which is beyond understanding as you sit in his presence. Be blessed to soak in his glorious light and delight in your Savior. Amen.
