“But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, He sat down at the right hand of God” (Hebrews 10:12 ESV).
We know that Jesus came to give us an abundant life (John 10:10). Yet many of us would frequently describe our lives with words such as busy, stressed, anxious, or even overwhelmed. Despite how much we dislike the weight of such a frantic existence, we often carry on living with a gap between our experience and the fullness of life we know that Jesus has to offer. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
God has given us a blueprint in His Word so powerful that if fully embraced, it will effortlessly transport us into the abundant life that Jesus died to give us. We must finally come to grips with the fact that even though our culture may desire us to live fast-paced, ragged lives, God does not. God does not want us to be exhausted, burned out, or at the end of our ropes. His Way always leads us to the fruit of the Spirit: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). And while those qualities can only be born in us by His Spirit, they are also indicators of the kind of experience we should be having if we have fully embraced all that is available to us through Christ.
Hebrews 10:12 makes it clear that the position of victory is seated. Seated in our identity in Christ. Seated in all that He has accomplished. Seated in His perfect sovereignty and plan for our lives. Seated in His love. The confidence and peace that comes from being seated with Christ is the breakthrough you long for in your soul. Any sense of dissatisfaction or lack is cast away and then filled up by the fullness of Christ when we remain seated in Him.
Scripture makes it clear that as believers we are already seated with Christ in the heavenly realms – and that is a work of God (Ephesians 2:6). But is our job to stay seated. We must allow that heavenly reality to become our earthly one. Just as Jesus prayed that God’s will would be done “on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10), may we allow the heavenly reality of our seated position to be our earthly one – staying seated in our hearts even in a world that daily stands and strives for the fruit that could only come from a life of trusting and resting in Him alone.
