And made us to sit with him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2.6.  

I spent many hours when first believing in the Lord trying to figure out how blessed it would be if I could sit in the heavenly places daily and have sins under my feet. But as with flying an airplane, I could not endure for very long up above. I soon fell down. I prayed and prayed, hoping that one day I could sit securely in the heavenly places and break my old record of ascension. One day as I read Ephesians 2.6 I began to understand. At the time a Christian is raised together with Christ, he is also made to sit with Christ in the heavenly places. He sits there with Christ not because of his diligence or because of his prayer, but because he was taken to the heavenly places at the time Christ himself ascended to heaven. Christ is in the heavenly places, and therefore I too am in the heavenly places.
