The Power of the Resurrection
Daily, the believer is called to live in the power of the risen Christ. It is this power that enables us to do, say and think the next right thing. It is this power that enables us to love our neighbor (others) as we have come to love ourselves. It is this power that keeps us obedient to the Holy Spirit. It is this power that increases our faith, hope, our confidence and our strength in God. Praise God for the power of the risen Christ.
It is by the power of the resurrection that we may declare as Paul in Philippians 3: 13-14, as he teaches on the things of Christ and walking in his likeness, “Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Praise God for the power of the risen Christ.
It is by the power of the risen Christ that we are able to bind the voice, the influence of Satan in our lives. It is in Christ that we have the victory. Mark 3:27 speaks to binding the power of the enemy. We know one who is stronger, more mighty and has all power and authority. One who is able. It reads, “In fact, no one can enter a strong man’s house without first tying him up. Then he can plunder the strong’s man house.” We will be neither robbed, destroyed, annoyed nor distracted by Satan. Let us not fall prey to the desires of this world, but let us be led by the victorious spirit of God. Let us seek first the Kingdom of God, the things of God and his righteousness. In doing so, we bind the power, the influence the enemy might have in our lives. We are able to bind him only by the power and authority given to us in Christ, our risen Savior.
Lord, we thank you for new life. It is so refreshing, so assuring to know that you are with us. Thank you, Father, for being the one true living God of our lives. We love you, Lord, for all things…we take nothing for granted. It is in Jesus’ name that we are called to pray. Amen!
