“Sit, Walk, Stand” in Ephesians and Psalm 1

“Sit, Walk, Stand” – This is a useful summary of the message of Ephesians: “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (2:6); “I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called” (4:1); “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (6:11).
“Sit, Walk, Stand” – We also find these words in the first Psalm: “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful” (v. 1). Concerning those who persist in walking in the counsel of the ungodly, standing in the way of sinners and sitting in the set of the scornful, the first Psalm says this: “Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous” (v.5).
