Heavenly Places

Take a moment and read these familiar passages in these less-read translations. Just let it remind you...

Ephesians 2.6

"...[God] raised us with Him from the dead, and enthroned us with Him in the heavenly realms as being in Christ Jesus," Weymouth New Testament

"In our union with Christ Jesus he raised us up with him to rule with him in the heavenly world." Good News Translation

"...and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus," New King James

As I read these passages this morning, it served as an encouraging reminder of our wonderful position in Christ. He has empowered us to rule. We are situated above this natural realm, no longer subject to it. We are partakers with Christ of His heavenly kingdom and should live like it.

I don't know about you, but I need to be reminded. I need to remember to set my affection on things above and not on things of this earth; for I am dead and my life is hidden in Christ with God. Today I want to seek those things which are above, where He is, and where I am as well.

"Oh, Lord, help me today to do this very thing - to seek heavenly treasures and not earthly, to set my affection on things of your kingdom and not of this earth, and to keep a vision of You always before me. It is my desire - to honor You. And help me not to assume I know just what that will look like for me and everyone else, but let me learn to hear Your voice in this hour. You are moving in unique ways and I want to hear Your Spirit as You call. I will look for You this day. Amen."

Hi! Brietta told me to get the recipe for the wedding cake from you or Paula. Do you have it on your computer or would it be easier to call and get it from you? If you want to email it, my address is rdanielsfamily@twcny.rr.com. Thanks!
