Word for Today: Desire to know the power of His Resurrection .
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality
Improving our Spiritual Understanding
“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death” (Phil 3:10).
Glory, Glory be to God in the highest! Jesus is alive for ever. We thank God for Jesus Christ. Joyful Easter my beloved.
Like apostle Paul in our memory verse, everyone should desire to know the power of his resurrection increasingly. It was really a supernatural power. Death could not hold him in the grave, against all laws and expectations. The power was so mighty that it caused a great earth quake and the veil of the temple was torn (Matt 27:51).
It was difficult to believe. It was difficult to imagine with the human brain/mind. One of his disciples (brother Thomas) felt it was a joke. He was completely faithless. Hear his response: “The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe” (John 20:25).Though he later believed on seeing the nail marks, but Jesus told him: “Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed” “John 20:29).
Today, Jesus is alive to die no more. He says: “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelations 1:18).
There are many believers in the body of Christ today who fellowship quite regularly, but there is no depth or substance in their faith. Having Jesus as our Lord and Saviour require faith that is active. We thank God for the power that resurrected Jesus. The power has been made available to every true believe. The gospel is about the kingdom of God, and is about power: “For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power(1Cor 4:20)”.
The glorious resurrected Jesus Christ living in our hearts is the basis for this power. He is the embodiment of this power and he has handed it to all true believers. He says: “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matt 28:18). The more we understand and make use of this power the more we understand what brother Paul meant when he said: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Phil 4:13).We are the branches. He is the vine. Without him, we can do nothing (John 15:5). His name is the Word of God (Revelations 19:13).
Once we have received the Holy Spirit, that power is in our thoughts and in our words. Let us make use of it daily. Through spiritual training, His grace enables us to align our thoughts with the thoughts of God. Never use your words to contradict the written word of God. Any thoughts that you have that contradicts the word of God, take it captive to the obedience of Christ (2Cor 10:5). As you do this increasing, you will realize that all things work together for your good, irrespective of your circumstances (Rom 8:28).
Jesus Christ is alive forever:
“He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay”(Matt 28:6).
We bless God in Jesus Christ for Easter.
It is well with you in Jesus name.
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
There is someone reading this message , may you receive the grace to have increasing understanding of the power within you, in Christ Jesus as you obediently focus on the words of God in Jesus mighty name, Amen. Father, please help us to know more about the power of resurrection in Jesus name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
