Christ rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, sat at the right hand of His Father and now rules until all His enemies have been made His footstool. Then He will return and judge the world in righteousness. We will all receive the recompense for the deeds done in the flesh, whether good or evil.

For the saint, this theme of the exaltation of Christ is glorious, as is the hope that one day we shall see Him as He is and shall be made like Him, enjoying the blessings of glory for all eternity. This is in stark contrast with the humiliation of Christ which we considered last week, making the person and work of Christ all the more glorious.

Unbelievers, though, should not wait to face the Lord in judgment but should turn from their sins and embrace Jesus now as Lord and Savior, so they too will have a place in the inheritance that will be revealed.
