Summary: We become what we gaze upon therefore it stands to reason that if we gaze upon the beauty of the Father we will ultimately become one who is truly found in His image. And if we observe the words of the Holy Spirit and allow Him to lead us into the heart o
Seated with Christ in heavenly places, you may have heard the term and wondered; “How does that work, I am here on earth how do I sit with him”?
Eph 2:6; For he raised us from the dead along with Christ, and we are seated with him in the heavenly realms—all because we are one with Christ Jesus.
So the scripture says this is where we sit, and sit here we must, because the view from heaven changes our mindsets and is a trigger for transformation in our hearts and those we speak to.
We are the carriers of His glory because of the presence of God in our lives. Such a great gospel, such a liberating message.
John14:19-20: In just a little while the world will not see me again, but you will. For I will live again, and you will, too. When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.
His life was laid down that we might gain access to the portals of heaven, that glory might reign again in the creation of God. IN fact he has become our door into heaven, and we have become his door into the earth.
His blood brings release from sin & shame to bring the fullness of all that God has and had for his creation. The blood of Jesus removes our sins as far as the east is from the west so that we might boldly enter into the very throne of God.
Hebrews 4:16: So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it.
Eph 3:12; Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come fearlessly into God’s presence, assured of his glad welcome.
WHO ARE YOU?
To be a child before God is to recognize our total need of Him. A child relies on his Father for everything: for provision, for shelter, for comfort, for love, for guidance, for wisdom and for counsel. To be a child before God is to be loved and protected by the Father. I think at times we all grow to be bumptious teenagers in the Kingdom of God, but the longer we are Christians, the more we realize we know very little, and then as we grow older we return to being children again before God.
Every breath we draw is a gift from God and today we are alive by His grace. He has given us a free will, but it is in our interest to yield that will to Him. It won’t take away our freedom. It will in fact give us greater freedom as we learn that He is the Master and we are the canvas. The work of the Master is what people will stand in awe of not the canvas..
IT’S A MATTER OF SONSHIP
The matter of Sonship needs to be grasped by us in order for us to walk freely in and out of His glory. We never come boasting but we can come confident of His welcome because the words of the cross “It is finished” are engraved on us. In order to come into this place of gazing all we have to do is enter through Jesus. His invitation is there for all to come boldly. But don’t come through religion and don’t come without first coming into Christ, but what ever you do please come.
