…who is even at the right hand of God… – Romans 8:34

The right hand of God is the place of majesty, and the place of favour too. Now, Christ is His people’s representative. When He died for them they had rest; when He rose again for them, they had liberty; when He was received into His Father’s favour, yet again, and sat at His own right hand, then had they favour, and honour, and dignity. Do you not remember that the two sons of Zebedee asked to sit, one on the right hand and the other on the left? Little did they know that they had already what they asked for, for all the church is now at the right hand of the Father; all the church is now raised up together, and made to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. The raising and elevation of Christ to that throne of dignity and favour, is the elevation, the acceptance, the enshrinement, the glorifying of all His people, for He is their common head, and stands as their representative. This sitting at the right hand of God, then, is to be viewed as the acceptance of the person of the surety, the reception of the representative, and therefore, the acceptance of our souls. Who is He that condemneth, then? Condemn a man that is at the right hand of God? Absurd! Impossible! Yet am I there in Christ. Condemn a man who sits next to his Father, the King of kings! Yet there is the church, and how can she in the slightest degree incur condemnation when she is already at the right hand of the Father with her covenant Head. And let me further remark, that the right hand is the place of power. Christ at the right hand of God signifies that all power is given unto Him in heaven and in earth. Now, who is he that condemns the people that have such a Head as this? O my soul! what can destroy thee if omnipotence is thy helper? If the aegis of the Almighty covers thee, what sword can smite thee? Every blood-bought redeemed child of God is safe and secure for ever. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
