πŸ‘‘ The Christian’s Glorious Prospect

Those of us who trust in Christ for salvation have a glorious prospect. For the present, while waiting to go to be with Him, β€œwe have redemption, through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace” (Eph. 1:7). In infinite love God has made us to be β€œaccepted in the Beloved” (Eph. 1:6) and has pronounced us β€œcomplete in Him” (Col. 2:10).

Our position is now a blessed and exalted one, for God has made us to β€œsit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Eph. 2:6) and has β€œblessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” (Eph. 1:3).

But this is only the beginning, for, referring to the Christian’s death, Phil. 1:23 tells us that β€œto depart, and to be with Christ… is far better”; far better, not only than earth’s sorrows and troubles, but far better even than earth’s dearest treasures and joys.

But even this is not all, for the time will come when, the Church, β€œthe Body of Christ,” having been completed, the Lord will come to receive all of its members, living and dead, to Himself. Referring to the resurrection of the deceased believer’s body, I Cor. 15 declares that β€œit is raised in incorruptibility” (I Cor. 15:42), β€œit is raised in glory” (I Cor. 15:43), β€œit is raised in power” (I Cor. 15:43), β€œit is raised a spiritual body” (I Cor. 15:44), for β€œas we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly” (I Cor. 15:49). And as to those believers who will be alive at His coming, he says: β€œWe shall all be changed” (I Cor. 15:51).

β€œFor… we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall change our vile body that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself” (Phil. 3:20,21). source
