You may be surprised to find out that there are many believers today who do not believe that they have been perfected forever by the finished work of Jesus Christ. They are still depending on their self-efforts to qualify themselves.
Only Jesus’ work is a finished work. And not only did He sit down at the Father’s right hand, He made us sit down with Him!
The Word of God declares the following about the finished work of Jesus on the cross: “But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God … For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.” Hebrews 10:12-14
‘Sitting down’ in the Bible is a picture of the believer resting in the finished and completed work of Jesus. He has finished all the work on the cross on your behalf and is now seated at the right hand of God.
As it has all been accomplished on your behalf, this means that you can stop depending on your self-efforts to earn and qualify for God’s blessings in your life.
His finished work on the cross was offered as one sacrifice forever, never to be repeated. When you received Jesus Christ into your life, you were perfected forever.
”But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ … and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:4-6
You now sit down with Jesus at the Father’s right hand! Wow!
