Only in the Beloved

by Chip Brogden

April 6

“No one has ascended to heaven
but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son
of Man who is in heaven.”
JOHN 3:13

No one has ascended because no one can ascend. Rest assured that if it were possible, someone would have done it! But just as we cannot make ourselves acceptable to God on the basis of anything we have done, so too we cannot ascend and seat ourselves at the right hand of God. “He has made us accepted in the Beloved” (Eph. 1:6). We are accepted only in the Beloved; we are saved only in the Beloved; and only in the Beloved can we be raised from the dead, ascend and be seated in the heavenlies.
