Acts 7:55 Stephen sees Messiah standing at the right hand of God. But Eph. 1:20 says Messiah was seated at the right hand of God. Is there a contradiction? What's the explanation? Stephen is bearing witness while he's being stoned to death and calling for forgiveness of his murderers. The Lord couldn't sit for that. He rose to His feet as one rises for a standing ovation. As if to say, "Well done My good and faithful servant. Enter the joy of your Master." He sits on His throne, but He rises to His feet when He sees a man love his enemies, when He sees you triumph in salvation, when He sees you have victory over that sin. When He sees you rise up, He will rise to see it. When He sees you overcoming in love and mercy--when He sees you living a life of greatness. It will cause your Lord and Master to stand. So do something extraordinary this week. Do something great in God, something that's going to cause the One seated at the right hand of God to stand up.
