Can we go higher?

While we ARE, already seated in the heavenlies I believe we can go ‘higher’, ‘farther’ ‘deeper’, whatever word suites.

It is like being married. Once you are married you are married, you can’t get more married, but you can get deeper into the married relationship.
When God calls us deeper (my prefered word) he is not calling us to greater exertion, but to greater rest. He is calling us to more submission, greater expereince of his spirit, more clear communication.

There are a great many paradoxes in the Christian life and I think “you are in the highest place you can be, now go higher” is my favourite. smile emoticon
