On The Heavenly Plain

"And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus" (Ephesians 2:6)

Earth may have been good enough for that creature who was created from the dust and clay, but it is not good enough for the living soul who is redeemed by royal blood!

Earth was fit and proper to be the eternal dwelling place for that creature who was made by God's hand, but it is not appropriate nor sufficient to be the eternal dwelling place of that redeemed being who is begotten of the Holy Spirit. Every truly born-again Christian has been lifted up - lifted up from the level of the fallen Adamic race to the heavenly plane of the unfallen and victorious Christ. He belongs up there!

The children of God are partakers of the divine nature. From bearing the "image of the earthly," they now bear the "image of the heavenly." God has imparted to them a portion of His own loveliness. He has formed them new creatures.

And I shall see Him face to face
And tell the story - saved by grace:
And I shall see Him face to face
And tell the story - saved by grace.

~A. W. Tozer~
