THE “AND YOU” GOSPEL
And you hath he quickened… (Ephesians 2:1)
“If you are the little toe on the body of Christ, you are still seated with Christ far above every principality and every power.” – Mark Hankins
Most churches will talk to you about Jesus. He died; He was buried; He arose from the dead; He is triumphant. He is raised; He is seated, and all power in heaven and earth is given to Him. Many churches will tell you all about Jesus, but they will make you think Jesus is way up there, and you are just a little worm down here struggling to get along.
Paul lifts Christ to the highest pinnacle in the universe and then says, “And you hath he quickened.” (Ephesians 2:1) He lifts up Christ and you with Him. Then Paul says, “Christ is the head; we are His body.” We are His body, and He is the head. Everything is underneath His feet! If you are the little toe on the body of Christ, you are still seated with Christ far above every principality and every power.
Confession: Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:5-6)
