But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he had done for us who are united with Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7
Above all, you must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner worth of the good news about Christ. We are all in this struggle together. Philippians 1:27, 30
When did you loose your seat in heaven? Who removed you from there? You are a citizen of heaven! Live like it. Act like it. Speak like it. Walk like it.
We should never go into battle without first being seated.
