“Jesus wears the flesh which is our inheritance” by Gerrit Scott Dawson

“The Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven in the selfsame body in which He lived, died and rose in our midst. Glorified now, Jesus wears the flesh which is our inheritance. Though fully human still, and thus embodied, Jesus is yet fully God and able to communicate Himself to the members of His body across all distance of realms, dimensions, hours or miles. This is accomplished by the work of the blessed Holy Spirit, who is able, beyond all comprehension, to connect those who seem impossibly separated.”

–Gerrit Scott Dawson, Jesus Ascended: The Meaning of Christ’s Continuing Incarnation (Phillipsburg, NJ: P&R Publishing, 2004), pp. 51-52.
