The Son Sat Down

Moreover, every single priest stands daily,
ministering and offering the same sacrifices, time after time,
which can never take away sins,
but he, having offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins,
sat down at the right hand of God.”
Hebrews 10:11–12
Israel’s priests could not sit down after they offered the sacrifices commanded by the law of Moses because those sacrifices had to be repeated, over and over again, generation after generation.  But when Jesus ascended into heaven and offered himself to God to make atonement for our sins, he sat down because his offering of himself was perfect and is eternally in force.

Proverbs 16:27–28 KJV
"An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire. A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends."

This is only true when the “chief friends” are foolish.  Be filled with the Spirit, and you will be wise – and talk will not move you.

"Be Filled with the Spirit"

Greetings, everyone.

As I was waking up this morning, I started to pray, as I have done many times, "Lord, let me do your will today."  Then I heard this: "Don't pray to do my will; be filled with the Spirit, and then, you'll do it."

If we're not filled with the Spirit, we won't do God's will, no matter how much we pray that we do it.  God would rather we do His will (be filled with His Spirit) than to pray that we will do it.
