Taken to the heights of glory in Jesus!
1 Corinthians 2:9-10
‘However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him” – but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit.’
How glorious is it to know that there is no great ascension we need to somehow climb in Christ?! There is no mystical building, whereby our good works translate to spiritual building material! But, in our beautiful Jesus we have ascended with him to the highest heights of glory and have been provided a vast estate; a glorious union with everything provided, the quality of which goes far beyond anything the wisdom of man could imagine or describe! And we get to live these glories throughout our day, every day! So many settle for mediocre, when in Christ we already have a solid, eternal union laden with every blessing imaginable! Whether you can feel this reality or not, whether it seems logical, it is real and it is the truth, it’s in Christ!
Now, not everyone believes that this reality – the truth of having something prepared that is unimaginable to human wisdom, that is so beautiful that even the best human language can’t describe, something that is engineered so wonderfully that the cleverest of human logic can’t fathom or explain – is for the here and now. Lots of people relegate verse 9 of 1 Corinthians 2 to the after-death experience. However, those people forget the mega scope of the finished work of Jesus and the glorious impact of the Spirit of God, oh and verse 10 which states that God has revealed those things already! Why has he revealed them? Why are they not a mystery to the children of God? Because they are in us, included in our Salvation! Paul goes on to say in the same chapter that the Spirit is given to us to so that we may understand the things FREELY given of God (vrs. 12), and then says we have the mind of Christ, we know the things of God! (vrs. 16).
We have the Spirit now! And by virtue of having the Spirit we have the glorious things which the Spirit reveals, those things freely given! Be confident today! Know that you have a no-lack union, filled with so much glory that it can only be the Jesus-experience!
