Seated, Serving

Seated in the skyward realms
I have been redeemed, restored.
Yet I'm here beneath these elms
Sent to serve my living Lord.

Jesus' mind is mine, you see--
Both by Spirit and by word--
And I walk in service free,
Free as any flying bird.

Death's been killed, completely slain.
Life is here--rich, pulsing, strong,
Growing deep and firm and plain,
Flowing with an inward song.

God...made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus...
(Ephesians 2:4-6
