But now in Christ Jesus ye who once were far off are made near by the Blood of Christ" (Eph. 2:13).
To know the Lord Jesus is to love Him; and to love Him is to insist on being with Him; to "press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" (Phil. 3:14).
"Our growth is wrought out in our lives down here; but it is formed up there in fellowship with the Lord Jesus, where our affections and minds get into the condition to be manifested down here." -J.N.D.
"Every blessing is now connected with the Lord Jesus at the right hand of the Father. Hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ' (Eph. 1:3). It is a great thing to have the consciousness that we are bound up with Him there in heavenly glory, and to know that we are with Him in that sphere of ascension to participate in all that constitutes His life in that blessed circle of love and glory where He lives unto the Father. If we apprehend this we shall not be deceived and intoxicated by what goes on upon the earth." -C.A.C.
"Most do not go beyond His resurrection; they do not extend to His ascension. They do not know the Lord Jesus in glory. They are occupied with Him in relation to their own side. He was at my side and glorified the Father perfectly in His walk here, and in death; but He is now at His own side, and it is there I intelligently realize the vastness of my life in Him, for He is my life.
"His death, resurrection and ascension translated the believer from his own side to His side, so that as He is so are we in this world; and according as we are at full rest about ourselves, we are occupied with Him who has set us free for fellowship." -J.B.S.
"Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the Holiest by the Blood of Jesus" (Heb. 10:19)
