“He Sat Down…”
These words are in the first chapter of Hebrews and are found in a phrase that says of Jesus, “After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.” (Hebrews 1:3)
“He sat down!” What amazing words! They can only mean one thing. The work that He did for us was totally and absolutely complete.
In the Old Testament priests never sat down. Hour after hour, day after day they’d offer sacrifices. They’d be knee deep in blood, but they’d make yet another sacrifice. Those sacrifices were never able to fully pay the penalty. After He made sacrifice (of himself), Jesus sat down! What does that mean? It means His provision for you is full and complete. It means He’s given you all you need to be right with him, to be what you’re supposed to be, and to do what you are called to do.
So when you begin to doubt HIS grace or when you are tempted to justify yourself, just say these three words to yourself – “HE SAT DOWN.” And celebrate the amazing grace that’s yours right here, right now!
