…he picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah.Ephesians 2:6 (The Message)
Yesterday was the commemoration of the story of Jesus’ ascension into heaven. It is easy to allow that image to feed our bias that God, the Divine, the risen Christ is somehow apart from us, up in the sky – lifted off like a rocket.
The letter writer in Ephesians reminds us that is not the case. God has “picked us up and set us down” right where Christ is. Let us not stand around too long searching the sky. Let us get busy, knowing we have the same view and enjoy the same Divine relationship that the pioneer of our faith knows!
