“When you’re mean, I don’t think you’re sitting in His lap.”
This one needs clarified but, in context, it’s so, so good!`
My husband said this one night while he was preaching from Ephesians 2:6,
“He raised us up with Him and seated us in the heavenly realms with our beloved Jesus the Anointed, the Liberating King.” (the Voice)
It’s our place, for our spirits to be “seated with Him” while our bodies are functioning here on earth. Often though, believers, will live out of their fleshly motives instead of spiritual ones.
When we’re walking in the Spirit, we produce things like love, joy, peace and patience but when we live by the flesh, the opposite will flow from our lives. In Mitch’s words, when you’re being mean, you’re walking in the flesh, not taking your place, seated with the Father.
