Eph 2: 4-7 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
He made us to sit in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus not only to impart the heavenly attributes, but also to show His exceeding riches by His grace, kindness and love in Christ Jesus. Before entering into the newness of this life, we were blinded by the ruler of this world to see His love, kindness and grace towards us. We were not able to understand, because a veil of carnality was in front of our eyes. When we are born again this veil of carnality is removed and we can see what God gave as an inheritance in Christ Jesus. If we know this truth early on in our spiritual life, it would be easy for us to establish our hearts in the riches of God the Father in Christ Jesus and to run and finish our race in faith.
