"Could it be that we have given so much attention to His life on earth that we have failed to attach the proper importance to His life as it has continued for nearly 2, 000 years in heaven? Actually the events of His earth-life were the foundation for His continuing life and ministry "at God's right hand" (Romans 8:34). What He did then was in preparation for what He is doing now and will do in the future. Although it's important that we know what He did and even will do in the future, it is vital for our Christian life and understanding that we know what He is doing NOW!".
