"For our conversation is in heaven; from when also we look for the savior, the Lord Jesus Christ." Philippians 3:20
IN JESUS TODAY!
What a friend we have in Jesus! All through the day and night he is our audience, with open ears he listens and communes with us, and we with him. Listen to what Jesus says about you and I, "Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his Lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you." John 15: 14,15 Right here and right now we must see Jesus different, and we must see ourselves different too! Since our conversation is in Heaven, since we are no longer servants, but know have become friends, we must consider how Jesus has changed our relationship with him. Where once we were strangers and foreigners, now we are his beloved friends! As friends of Jesus we do not have distant conversations, as friends of Jesus we do not have a position outside of the doors to heaven where we are simply waiting to be allowed in, but now we have access to Jesus and we have access to heaven! As it is written, "Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners; but fellow citizens with the Saints and of the household of God." Ephesians 2:19 Now what we hear and what we receive of Jesus is not Outsider Information, but now we are entrusted with Insider Wisdom!
No longer are we not knowing what our Master does, but now we know what Jesus' will is, what he desires, and what his plans are for the future! We know these things because we are friends of Jesus, and as his friends we are told of things to come. We are Jesus friends who are on the inside, "For our conversation is in Heaven." In Heaven, where Jesus is, we have full access as his friends, and we learn of what our Master does!
