Eph. 2:6-10 is a beautiful and rich passage.  “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.  For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”  We will be “raised up with Christ.”  We will be closely associated with Christ, our brother and joint heir, seated in a place of honor.  That is awesome.  But we are not the honored one.  It is “not of works, so that no one can boast.”  It is a gift of God, pure grace.  We are the result of God’s “workmanship.”  He has re-created us, formed us into people that will carry out the purpose for which we were originally created.  So why would God seat us in honored places?  We will be on display as an example of God’s grace—and we will remain on display “in the coming ages,”  that is, for all eternity.  That’s doubly awesome!  We won’t be admired; we will only demonstrate the loving kindness of Christ.  God will be worshiped for what he did, not for what we did.
