The life of the Believer always presents these three aspects—to God, to man, and to the Satanic powers. To be useful in God's hand, a man must be properly adjusted in respect of all three: his position, his life, and his warfare. Shalom.
Our Attitude to the Enemy— Stand
Finally, be strong in the LORD, and in the strength of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil...That ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand. Shalom.
Our Life in the World — WALK
When we are truly seated and found our strength in sitting down, then we begin to walk. Sitting describes our position with Christ in the heavenlies. Walking is the practical outworking of that heavenly position here on earth. Shalom.
Our Position in Christ — SIT
Ephesians 2:6 is the secret of a true Christian experience. God has made us to sit with Christ in the heavenly places, and EVERY Christian must begin their spiritual life from that place of rest. Shalom.
We will take, then, these three words—Sit, Walk, Stand—as guides to the teaching of Ephesians, and as the text for its present message to our hearts. We shall find it most instructive to note both the order and the connection in which they come. Shalom.
