John 3:13 - "No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven."
He was describing a lifestyle with the Father -- even though He was standing on earth He had ascended into heavenly realms in His relationship with God. That is an invitation for every believer. Colossians 3:1 - "If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God."
We are as raised from the dead as Jesus because it is actually His resurrection. By consideration of that biblical truth, the Lord invites us into an encounter where we start thinking and seeking according to the biblical reality. It comes from the fact that when Jesus was raised from the dead (as you) He defeated every enemy of humanity -- His victory is your victory.
