Seated With Christ

Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
(I Corinthians 6:2-3)
 
In 1 Corinthians 6, Paul chided the Corinthians for failing to resolve difficulties without suing one another. We should be able to settle matters with each other, he said, because one day we'll judge the world.
 
It's hard to foresee how that will happen, but similar verses reinforce the point. The Bible teaches we will reign with Christ and have part in His kingship. When He judges the world, we'll be there to agree with His judgment.
 
Jesus told His disciples in Matthew 19:28, "You who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel."
 
Revelation 3:21 adds, "To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne."
 
The Bible says, "If we endure, we shall also reign with Him" (2 Timothy 2:12).
 
In Revelation 20, John envisioned God's faithful children reigning with Christ a thousand years.
 
If we'll one day judge the world, shouldn't we be able to work out our disagreements now? Think of a troubled relationship in your life and ask God for wisdom to improve it.

God has raised you up to be seated with Christ in the heavenly realms. It's a place not only of privilege but of serious responsibility, for as you pray, you do so alongside your Lord and from an exalted position.
