Ephesians 2:4-6 NKJV

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,  even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

Paul states that God who loves us greatly raised us up and made us sit in heavenly places in Christ. That is a spiritual position. But is it a place the Lord has us in without relevance to this life on earth? Absolutely not! However, it’s obviously not a physical place, but a spiritual one. Therefore, in order for us to benefit from it, we must go into the realm of the unseen. We must understand a seat represents position and authority. The leader of a country has a seat. For example, the president of the USA has a seat in the Oval Office in Washington, D.C. He does not physically sit in that seat constantly, but he operates from it. The fact that it is his seat gives him authority to function in all the powers of his governmental position. So it is with those of us who are in Christ. We have a seat in Heaven that indicates our position and authority. Our seat gives us access to the throne of God where we can plead our case and discuss matters with the Ruler of the Universe. More importantly, we can take orders from the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and fulfill our assignment with confidence. Let us picture ourselves in that seat and act accordingly.
