Why is Jesus Said to Be “Seated” at God’s Right Hand?

“What is Jesus doing at the right hand of God? Did you notice? He is seated. “If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God” (Col. 3: 1). It’s a visual picture of Jesus’s words “It is finished” (John 19: 30). He’s sitting down because the work he came to do is done. The work of atoning for our sins is complete (Heb. 10: 10). The record of our debt has been canceled (Col. 2: 14).” -Rankin Wilbourne, Union with Christ
