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!
