Jesus Reigns

“He sat down at the right hand of God”
(Hebrews 10:12)

Reflection:
The second insight we gain from this scripture comes from where Jesus is sitting. He sits at the right hand of God – in the place of the highest possible honour. It is the supreme place of majesty, power and authority in the entire created order. And from here Jesus reigns.

  • God “raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church” (Ephesians 1:20-22)

It is from here that

  • Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to His people on the Day of Pentecost
  • Jesus continues to send out His people on mission and ministry to the lost and suffering
  • Jesus continues to give light, life and power to His teaching through the Holy Spirit

Although the powers of evil have not yet surrendered Jesus showed quite clearly during His earthly ministry that He is able to exercise authority over them. When He decides that the time has come He will exercise that authority fully and finally.

Prayer:

 Lord the kingdom, the power and the glory are Yours now and forever. Amen
