HE SAT DOWN
(So You Can Too)
How to Receive the Peace of Jesus in a World that Stands
From Amazon #1 Best-Selling Author Wes Raley comes a powerful new book about how to have the peace of God in a world of striving, busyness, and performance.
We know that Jesus came to give us an abundant life. Yet many of us would frequently describe our lives as busy, stressed, anxious, or apathetic. Yet we carry on living with a gap between our own experience and the fullness of life we know that Jesus has to offer.
But it doesn't have to be this way.
God has given us a blueprint, a principle in His Word so powerful that if fully embraced, it will effortlessly transport us into the abundant life that Jesus died to give us. We must finally come to grips with the fact that even though our culture may desire us to live this way, surely God does not. God does not want us to be exhausted, burned out, or at the end of our ropes. His Way always leads us to the fruit of the Spirit: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. And while those things can only be born in us by His Spirit, they are also indicators of the kind of experience we should be having if we have fully embraced all that is available to us through Christ.
"But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, He sat down at the right hand of God" (Hebrews 10:12 ESV).
Hebrews 10:12 makes it clear that the position of victory is seated. Seated in our identity in Christ. Seated in all that He has accomplished. Seated in His perfect sovereignty and plan for our lives. Seated in His love. The confidence and peace that comes from being seated with Christ is the breakthrough you long for in your soul. Any sense of dissatisfaction or lack is cast away and filled up by the fullness of Christ in remaining seated.
Although scripture makes clear that we are already seated with Christ in the heavenly realms - and that is a work of God (Ephesians 2:6), it is our job to stay seated. We must allow the heavenly reality to become our earthly one as well. staying seated in our hearts and in our daily lives even while we live in a world that daily stands - striving for the fruit that could only come from a life trusting and resting in Him alone.
