We Have Been Raised Up

“Yet all Christians, whoever they are, and however unimportant they may be in the world, because they are ‘in Christ’, are, without exception, sharing our Lord’s exalted position in glory.  This is actually true of us now, as the Apostle tells us in his second chapter — ‘And hath raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus’ (Ephesians 1:6).  You cannot separate the head from the body, or the trunk from the body, so what is true of the head is true of the whole body.  Just as our Head is in glory, so His body is there — mystically, spiritually!”  –D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones “God’s Ultimate Purpose — Ephesians 1” p. 442-443

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
