The Already and Not Yet

And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus …
Ephesians 2:6
Comprehension fails
and imagination struggles.
There and not there.
Here and not here.
In heaven,
and on earth.
Unfathomable truth.
Complete and at peace – eternal.
Incomplete and struggling – temporal.
The already and not yet.
Raised and ascended with Christ
but day by day struggling 
with brokenness and sin.
But not forever.
The joy,
the inexpressible future
rings out:
The old order will pass
and every tear wiped away!
