Bible Verse for Today
“Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” (Ephesians 2:5-6)
Today’s Bible text reveals Jesus’ substitutionary work for us. It tells us that Jesus’ death and resurrection and ascension and enthronement are all ours because he took our place as our substitute. When Jesus died, we died with him and when he was made alive we were made alive together with him and raised together and made to sit together with him in heavenly places in Christ. Amazing concept of substitution, identification, and representation.
God sees us in Christ’s substitution for us. In the father’s mind of eternal Justice is everything Jesus has done for us as ours and that truly so. Justice is a substitution it is in identification it is in representation. That is the wisdom of God. The bible is a legal document containing two testaments or covenant. In the New Testament, some adjustments were made and one of these adjustments is that we have access to the throne of Christ and we can reign with him.
When God raised Jesus from the dead he made him sit at his right hand in the heavenly places far above principalities and power and Dominion and night and every day in the world and in that which is to come. Did you see that in the mind of Justice you are the one being without you right there when God intrude Jesus Christ our substitute is meant to ensure us with him and he did and told us with him?
The Holy Spirit witness in the revelation of Jesus Christ gives it to the apostle Paul and the other Apostles in the epistles.
