If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. Romans 8:11
As our thoughts are focused on Jesus this Easter weekend, let’s think a moment on God’s power.
God created all things.
God (Jesus) lived on earth as a human.
Folks, He never sinned.
Even when hungry, He never snapped.
Even when tired, He still blessed others.
Even knowing how He was about to die, He still did.
For you and for me.
He allowed Himself to carry our sinful burdens to die in our place.
But He didn’t stay there.
He rose from the dead, conquering sin and death once and for all.
He set people free physically, mentally, and spiritually.
And He’s sitting at the right hand of God Almighty, interceding for us each day.
Real God power, not fake movie power like Marvel or DC (sorry folks!).
But that same real power from God lives in us as Christians.
Romans 8:11 says so.
It says if God dwells in us (through the Holy Spirit), then God will give His life to our bodies as He lives within us.
God, who raised Jesus from the dead, will live within you.
I want that life surging through my veins.
How about you?
Continue asking Him to fill you with His Holy Spirit.
Stop dragging your feet around in misery.
Stop focusing on all of the crud life has thrown your way.
Stop listening to Satan’s lies you know deep down are not true.
And focus on God.
He raised Jesus from the dead.
And He can raise you to life here on earth just the same.
But you must choose to rise up from your grave of sin, death, and destruction.
Fling off the dirty rags of self.
With God’s power, you will be set free to live for Him on earth.
Today, declare Jesus lives in me and I choose to focus on Him.
Hallelujah, He is risen.
He is risen indeed!
