Father, please guide and direct me this day. This is my day each week to get things done. Help me to focus so that I may complete my sermon, the bulletins and get through a majority of the PowerPoint for worship. And I would ask that it would not just be checking off a list of “to do’s” but that we would have fellowship and that Your track would be clearly visible in all that I do. Amen.
Hebrews 1:1-4 (<<click here)
Towards the end of verse 3, Lord, is a statement that has profound ramifications – You “sat down.” Two simple words but what they mean – wow! That You “sat down” means that the work was complete.* Your goal in coming to earth was to be the final sacrifice for sin and once You did that Your work was done, You sat down!
Once and for all my sin has been taken care – every sin of my past, every sin I will ever commit…taken care of! And this applies to every man, woman and child who has ever or who will ever walk the face of this earth. I committed the crime but You, Lord, paid the penalty…and the price was Your life. You died but You weren’t down for the count. No…You rose from the dead, wrapped things up and “sat down.” It…was…complete.
And now all we must do is accept Your gift of forgiveness. We cannot fix it. We cannot work for it. It…is…a…gift! We cannot just take it either – no shoplifting salvation is not an option. No hidden motives – no masks. Just me…before You… and it will be done.
