The word "power" occurs fifty-seven times in the New Testament. It is used to describe the most powerful event that ever happened, an event that separated AD from BC — the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. And that resurrection power is available to change your life!
The most important thing in life is knowing Christ and experiencing the power of His resurrection.
I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection.
~ Philippians 3:10
In another letter he tells his readers,
I pray that you will begin to understand how incredibly great His
power is to help those who believe Him. It is that same mighty power
that raised Christ from the dead and seated Him in the place of
honor at God’s right hand in heaven. ~ Ephesians 1:19-20
Paul uses the Greek word for power, dunamis, which is the root of our word dynamite. So Paul is saying, “God wants to give you dynamite power that can change your life.” Yes, the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead two thousand years ago is available to us right now.
Because of His power we can:
Be forgiven of our past sins
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in
Christ Jesus.~ Romans 8:1
Transform the weaknesses into strength
My grace is enough for you: for where there is weakness, my
power is shown the more completely.
~ 2 Corinthians 12:9 (JB Phillips)
Change our future
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to
prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and
a future.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11
In His Power,
