As Christians find themselves trapped in the rhetoric of platform, influence, retweets, and fame, they need a ladder out of the fray. Many of us live in a prison of self-absorption. Shackled with pride and despair, we compare ourselves to others constantly in our frantic, unending pursuit of perfection.
Seated with Christ gets to the root of this behavior and charts a path to freedom.
Scripture says that God's beloved are seated with Christ in the heavens (Eph. 2:6), treasured by him and given a place at his table. Heather Holleman unveils what this means for us. It means we walk out on the fight for acceptance. We quit measuring ourselves against others. We leap free from cycles of shame.
Securely-seated people can ask themselves hard questions about their lives; they can deal with sin, grieve their losses, and move forward in hope. From a position of security and self-forgetfulness they can joyfully do the good works prepared for them uniquely. They can even celebrate the successes of others.
Seated with Christ is a deeply personal, liberating look at a glorious truth: that we have a place at God's eternal table.

YES I would listen to this again.

This book is great. Total felt like she was putting words to my thoughts and feelings. I felt inspired. It helped me see that I am seated and I have my own place. LOVED IT!!!
This was such and encouraging book. I have recommended it to alot of my friends. I learned that I truly am seated woth Christ and I can't share my seat woth anyone else bc He loves me and has designated me my own beautiful seat at His table. I've read that in the Bible over and over but you helped to bring it to life for me. Thank you for allowing the Holy Spirit to use you!
