Where is Jesus?

We might say that He is up in Heaven. But unfortunately, our idea of Heaven is some sort of super retirement. You die, go to Heaven, and have a permanent vacation. But that is not what Jesus is doing. On the cross, He said, “It is finished.” And so His earthly calling of suffering and death was finished but His heavenly calling of victory over all things had just begun.

Jesus is working still. He prays for us and His Spirit supports us in His work of bringing all men into subjection to the Lord Jesus. To that end, Jesus is still working for the salvation of the world. He is working for His Church. He is working for you. 

Is this not a pleasant and peaceful thought? That the risen Lord Jesus is still laboring for your benefit? This is His heavenly victory that we are reminded of and partake of in this meal as we give thanks.
