Raised from death to life, transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of the Son of His love, enthroned with Him in the ‘heavenlies’. The Apostle does not want us to think of heaven as a PLACE, so much an EXPERIENCE! We have an everyday expression ‘over the moon’. Where is that? but a kind of heaven! But what does it all mean practically, in the here and now? Put simply, it means that I view all that goes on in life from my Heavenly Father’s vantage point! I can see things differently from an aeroplane than from my garden, and so it is in the spiritual realm. If, by faith, I can rise to my grace-given status, I will be helped to accept the unacceptable, glory in the ordinary, and see the trials and difficulties of life as the careful planning of a loving God.
