Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life, he that believes in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”
When Jesus rose from the dead, the same resurrection power that raised Him from the dead became available to every believer in Christ.
This was not only resurrection life after we die, but resurrection power while we are alive.
Paul writes in his letter to the Romans that we can walk in newness of life because of the Resurrection of Jesus.
Just as Christ died and was raised from the dead, our old nature died when we accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior, and we are raised into newness of life through that same resurrection power.
Because of God’s resurrection power in us, sin shall no longer have dominion over us. There is a greater power at work in us than the power of our natural bias to sin and we no longer need to give in to what our sinful nature urges us to do.
We are new creations, with a new nature, living by a new power.
The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. (Rom 8:11)
God’s resurrection power is in our spiritual DNA.
Whoever has died will live again.
Whatever has died can be raised to life again.
God is the God who breathes new life into all that has died, so that He can raise all that is dead to life again, better than it ever was before.
“This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?” God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what’s coming to us—an unbelievable inheritance! We go through exactly what Christ goes through. If we go through the hard times with him, then we’re certainly going to go through the good times with him!” (Romans 8:15-17 Message)
May we experience God’s resurrection power in every area of our lives this year and may God do exceedingly abundantly, above and beyond we could ever ask or imagine according to His mighty power that works in us in 2019!
